VIDEO: Bomani Jones Inducts Robert Nkemdiche Into Homeboy Hall Of Fame

By now, we're all familiar with the Robert Nkemdiche story. He's a high school defensive end from Georgia, and considered to be the next big star in college football. Nkemdiche, a top 2013 recruit, made a commitment to the Clemson Tigers, and since then has managed to get a crew of his homeboys on the team with him.

He's denied the reports, but it can't be overlooked that Clemson is bringing on four of his high school teammates and possibly a fifth one if the Tigers decide to "make a good situation better." Our very own Bomani Jones has the induction video below the jump, and gives you a brilliant historical perspective of the Homeboy Hall of Fame.

You remember dudes like Charles Oakley holding it down for Michael Jordan in the 80s, Lauryn Hill and Wyclef making sure Pras always had a role even if they didn't really need him. Master P holding it down for Silk and C Murder. And Barry Bonds' trainer Greg Anderson going to jail for his homie.

Nkemdiche isn't necessarily on that level of homeboy fame, but he gets props from Bo.
