The number one overall recruit, Robert Nkemdiche, committed to Clemson a few weeks ago, but still says it’s not a done deal.
Clemson also has commitments from Nkemdiche’s Grayson High School teammates in running back Wayne Gallman and cornerback David Kamara, but Nkemdiche told the AJC that in order for Clemson to make it a “done deal”, they need to offer Grayson defensive back Ryan Carter.
“I am waiting on Clemson to offer Ryan; when that happens, it’s locked … it’s a done deal … it’s over,” Nkemdiche told the AJC.
If Clemson doesn’t offer Carter, who has offers from Ole Miss, Arkansas State, Southern Miss, and Tulane, will Nkemdiche actually follow through with his words and head to another school that will?
Nkemdiche said he would have to take a better look at Ole Miss, where his brother Denzel is a redshirt freshman, if that’s the case.
“We’ve all talked about going to Ole Miss together if that doesn’t work out with Clemson,” Carter said. “Robert’s brother is there, and he’s definitely trying to get us to go there.”
Nkemdiche also mentioned his runner-up LSU saying, “It’s real out there at LSU but they didn’t have any of my boys going there, I didn’t feel like I would fit in there.”
So Clemson’s Dabo Swinney has a tough choice to make. He can either offer Carter a spot and seal the deal with Nkemdiche, or not and hope that Nkemdiche isn’t that serious about following Carter to Ole Miss.
