Last weekend Alpharetta's Naim Mustafaa committed to Richt. He was #1 on their board at the OLB position. That about tells you all you need to know about the relationship between Grayson's Nkemdiche and the Georgia Bulldogs.
Would Richt and his staff taken the nation's top prospect's commitment for 2013? Of course. He's a superior talent and an absolute freak. But it just wasn't going to happen, and even if Nkemdiche decides to listen to his other suitors moving forward (at which time Coach Swinney's policy of no visits will become big headlines) it's still not going to happen at UGA.
Richt and Co. get the luxury of looking ahead at other targets, ones that are probably higher on the board and that they have a better shot at signing. In fact, Kipp Adams points out several reasons ($) why Robert Nkemdiche committing to Clemson is a good thing for Georgia. It was going to happen eventually. The fact that it happened yesterday to a team not named Bama is like putting extra recruiting hours and resources in Georgia's pocket.
