Several of Georgia’s top college football prospects for next year were on display at Friday’s Nike camp in Athens.
However, it was a member of the Class of 2013 that grabbed the spotlight: Grayson High School’s Robert Nkemdiche, a 6-foot-5, 260-pounder who turned everybody’s heads as soon as he walked up to the registration table. He’s only a sophomore.
Nkemdiche dominated the drills, so much to the point that one other heralded defensive lineman — a junior — was overheard saying to a couple of others, “I’m just glad 783 (Nkemdiche’s camp number on his jersey) isn’t in the Class of 2012 with the D-Line rankings.”
The consensus of several recruiting analysts observing the camp, which included players from many surrounding states, was this: Nkemdiche will almost certainly be ranked at Georgia’s No. 1 overall prospect for 2013, and has a decent shot of being rated No. 1 overall in the USA.
Nkemdiche, who was named has a stack of early scholarship offers, including Alabama, Auburn, Georgia Tech, UGA and South Carolina. He won the Nike camp’s award for MVP of the defensive lineman.
Here were the other MVP position winners from Georgia:
RB: Mike Davis, 2012, Stephenson (committed to Florida)
OL: Joe Harris, 2012, Lithonia
LB: Ukeme Eligwe, 2012, Stone Mountain
DB: D.J. White, 2012, Union Grove
