(Grayson, Ga./Grayson), but he made one of the best first impressions.

"I can't believe he's only a sophomore," said Chuck Wiley, one of the Nike camp's defensive line coaches. "What he did was just great. Seeing a guy his size [6-foot-4, 264 pounds], I thought he would be a little stiff in the hips but that wasn't the case. He moves so well and is so quick and fast. But the thing I love most about him is that he is so coachable. You would tell him one thing and he would do it. You would tell him another and he would do it. Did you see him beating guys off the ball? I can't believe he's so young. I was impressed."

He was unblockable, even against some of the best offensive linemen from the Peach State like Vadal Alexander Vadal Alexander

"I thought I had an outstanding combine," Nkemdiche said. "I have never been to a combine before so I wanted to come out here and play hard. I know I still have a lot to learn but I don't think I was blocked at all. I am still learning."
