Robert Nkemdiche Pushing High School Teammates To Clemson

Elite football recruit Robert Nkemdiche says that the Clemson Tigers can cement his commitment if the Tigers offer another one of his high school teammates a scholarship for next season. Clemson already has commitments from two of Nekemdiche's Grayson High teammates in Wayne Gallman and David Kamara but now wants the Tigers to also offer 5-foot-10, 175 pound safety Ryan Carter.

"Clemson said they like Ryan a lot and that he's at the top of their board. Yes, sir, if Clemson offers Ryan, it would seal the deal. There's no ifs, ands or buts about it. David and Ryan, those guys are like family. They are like brothers to me. I'm close to them. We've had success playing football together and I don't want to change it."

Nkemdiche's status as the top recruit in the nation affords him considerable leverage and it is going to be interesting to see how the Tigers and Dabo Swiney respond. both Gallman and Kamara are nice prospects in their own right but Carter has offers from Ole Miss and Arkansas State and isn't the same level of prospect.
