).

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.
