It was the five-star's first true recruiting visit this fall and it couldn't have gone better in Tuscaloosa.
"The game was great and Alabama really should have won, but I loved the atmosphere. Football is so big at Alabama and they have it all. They are a strong team, they have great coaches, and the fans love their team. It was everything I wanted it to be."
Even though the game did not go the way the coaches at UA wanted it to, they made sure the 6-foot-4, 265 pound junior out of Loganville (GA) Grayson knew he was important to them.
"I talked a lot to Kirby [Smart], Sal [Sunseri], and Nick Saban after the game and it was great. I received a lot of attention from them and it is cool talking to them.
"All of them are different, all of them are cool, and I am comfortable with each one of them. All of them said the same thing to me, they all said they could use me there, and that they need me there.
"The coaches are awesome and they made me feel wanted. The coaches at Alabama take pride in their football, so feel like they want me means something."
It was the fourth time Nkemdiche has visited Tuscaloosa and it seems to get better each time. The Tide were high on his list entering this visit and they remain up there.
This may not be the last time Nkemdiche sees the Crimson Tide play live in 2011, he is thinking about traveling to Auburn to see them in the Iron Bowl later this month.
