08:25 AM ET 11.02 | These days, one of the most important figures in college recruiting is Beverly Nkemdiche. [Nkemdiche] is the mother of the nation's undisputed No. 1 overall college football prospect, Grayson High School defensive end Robert Nkemdiche -- who committed to Clemson last June. ... [Beverly was asked:] What do you like about Clemson? "I've never been to Clemson. I've not talked to anybody from Clemson's team. I don't want to go there because that's out of my way. There is nothing that would take me there. What took me to Ole Miss was [Robert's brother] Denzel. I haven't been to any other school. Honestly, if Denzel was not at Ole Miss, I wouldn't have gone to Ole Miss. My No. 1 team is Alabama. That's one school I truly love, Alabama."

So where does Robert want to go? And how does Denzel feel? And what about dad, we haven't heard from him yet? Inquiring minds want to know.

If I am not mistaken, Robert was pressing Clemson to offer schollies to some of his teammates. How did that pan out?

BTW, if this is the Grayson High School on the Georgia Piedmont, they do have a good program. [I have driven through Grayson on my way to one of the Georgia drop zones which I visit from time to time.]

She won't let you fly, but she might let you sing.

Mornin', DC. Thought a few visuals might wake me up. Words escape me this AM.

Pic, adages, sayings (or dichos if on the border) can say more, in few or no words, than an entire novel sometimes. But then, I'm telling an English teacher this...who already knows such.

So, I'm one of those that svt has a patent and copyright on.

Obvously a deeply thoughtful and well informed mother who wants the best for her son, despite her admitted ignorance.

She's a politician and state legislator. She's playing both sides ...

Now that's a scary thought; she actually gets to vote on things she probably knows nothing about!!

Sounds like a liberal. I'm sorry. I couldn't resist. I'll go to the penalty box now.
