Report: Nkemdiche Chooses Clemson

Defensive end Robert Nkemdiche has committed to Clemson, according to a report from

The news comes one day after Nkemdiche’s teammate and friend at Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga., cornerback David Kamara, committed to the Tigers. Grayson running back Wayne Gallman is also committed to Clemson.

Nkemdiche is widely considered to be the nation’s top prospect for the class of 2013. He has also considered schools such as Alabama, Georgia, LSU and Ole Miss, where his brother, Denzel Nkemdiche, is a redshirt freshman linebacker. Alabama was once thought to be the favorite to land Robert Nkemdiche.

Nkemdiche still has plenty of time to change his mind. Despite his commitment, you can expect plenty of schools to keep recruiting Nkemdiche until he has officially signed with a school.

UPDATE: The news of Nkemdiche’s commitment to Clemson has been confirmed by and 247Sports.

Nkemdiche Making Return Trip To Clemson

Clemson continues to make a strong impression on Robert Nkemdiche.

The defensive end from Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga., will return to Clemson on Monday for a visit along with teammate and close friend David Kamara.

Clemson has continued to be included in Nkemdiche’s list of top five schools, along with Alabama, Georgia, LSU and Ole Miss. Florida, South Carolina and Florida State have also been mentioned as schools of interest.

And add Vanderbilt to that list. Yes, Vanderbilt. Nkemdiche and Kamara plan to visit the school’s campus on March 24.

That news shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. Vanderbilt quarterback commit Johnathon McCrary told MrSEC on Feb. 18 that Nkemdiche would take a look at the Commodores.

“(Nkemdiche) said he’s actually interested in Vanderbilt,” McCrary said. “That says a lot about his character.”

Still, Vanderbilt should be considered a longshot at best to land Nkemdiche. But the Commodores could make a push for Kamara, who has picked up offers from Ole Miss and Mississippi State in the last week.

Kamara told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Clemson, Arkansas and Florida continue to evaluate him.
