Robert Nkemdiche Profile
The five-star prospect was all smiles after Grayson High School knocked off visiting Miami Central, 35-3. After the game, of course, reporters anxiously awaited to hear what's next with his recruitment.
"I'm just real focused on the season right now," he said. "Coming off a big game, we've just got to stay grounded and humble towards the whole season. That's what we're going to focus on doing."
There's a big support group around Nkemdiche, to help him stay grounded.
"It's really my coaches. They just help me with everything. They prepare me for all these things. They tell me what to say and just do a great job of helping me stay humble," he said.
Plenty of coaches from other schools continue to recruit the Clemson commitment.
Ole Miss, Alabama, Florida -- everybody,
"I don't really pay attention to that right now."
Nkemdiche, who spoke with Dabo Swinney on Thursday night, has plans to visit two schools.
"My brother plays at Ole Miss and I will be going there just to go watch him play. I'll be at a couple of Clemson games," Nkemdiche said.
He added, "I know I'm going to their first home game. I know that for sure. I haven't really talked with Swinney about it, but I know that I'm going to the first game."
Nkemdiche is one of three Clemson commitments on the Grayson squad. His classmates, David Kamara and Wayne Gallman, are also Tiger pledges.
"I think it'll help us a lot. Just knowing that you have someone that you've grown up with forever -- I've known both of them since the seventh grade, when I got here," Nkemdiche said. "I think it's going to help us when we stay together and go to college."
