Tigers complete Grayson Trifecta with nation's top recruit
CLEMSON – The nation’s No. 1-rated high school prospect for the 2013 recruiting cycle is a Clemson Tiger.
Robert Nkemdiche , the defensive line prospect out of Loganville (Ga.) Grayson completed the Grayson Trifecta for the Tigers, joining teammates and friends David Kamara and Wayne Gallman as Clemson verbal commits, giving the Tigers eight commitments for 2013.
It also gives Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney four commitments during the first three days of his high school camp – two for 2013 (Nkemdiche and Kamara) and two for 2014 (Dylan Sumner-Gardner and Dalvin Cook ).
However, Nkemdiche is the big prize, a rare blend of speed, size and power that had college coaches drooling. He chooses Clemson over dozens of other offers, including LSU and Alabama.
He arrived on the Clemson campus late Wednesday afternoon along with Kamara for Swinney’s camp. Gallman was already on campus. The trio spent the evening together and with several Clemson players, including Sammy Watkins, and Kamara gave his verbal to Swinney late Wednesday evening.
Once Kamara made his decision, whispers started coming out of the camp that Nkemdiche was close to a decision, and he met with Swinney Thursday afternoon.
Last month TigerNet went on location to Grayson high school. Check out our articles and videos with Nkemdiche.
