TigerNet: (5.00)

Height: 6-5   Weight: 275   Hometown: Loganville, GA (Grayson HS)   Class: 2013

He compares favorably to Jadeveon Clowney, the consensus No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2011. Nkemdiche is not quite as tall or fast as Clowney, but he's got a much bigger frame that could potentially allow him to play on the interior in college.

"Clowney was the better pass rusher, but Nkemdiche might be the better all-around lineman," Lemming said, likening Clowney to Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers and Nkemdiche to NFL Hall of Fame legend Reggie White.

The 6-foot-5, 270-pound defensive end has a unique blend of size and speed that makes him a terror off the edge. He could play outside linebacker or even defensive tackle at the next level but will likely stay at end where he can utilize his polished pass rush skills.
