From Clarion Ledger:

Alabama may still get an official visit from Nkemdiche, but the Crimson Tide, LSU and Georgia have fallen back in recent months. While each certainly would love to have the No. 1 prospect nationally, the depth of talent is enough (and the demand for the available scholarships so great) to keep the schools from going too far. Clemson and Ole Miss, two schools unaccustomed to recruiting at this level, have been willing to make that extra effort. Ole Miss is coming off a 2-10 season and would likely not be in the picture at all if former coach Houston Nutt had not given Denzel Nkemdiche a scholarship in May 2011.
