Cornerback Denzel Nkemdiche returned from an official visit to Ole Miss on Thursday, may take another recruiting trip to UGA this weekend, and said there are at least three other schools he wouldn’t mind hearing from.
The 6-foot, 205-pound Nkemdiche is a hot commodity because he appears to be on the brink of meeting NCAA academic requirements and is the older brother of Robert Nkemdiche, who is a candidate to be the nation’s No. 1 college football prospect for 2013. The brothers wish to play in the same team in college.
When Denzel was asked if there were any other schools he’d like to hear from, he told the AJC, “Yes, sir. It would be great to talk with Florida, Auburn and Tennessee. They are great programs. I don’t know the [scholarship] situation at those schools.”
The elder Nkemdiche said he has verbal offers from three schools — Ole Miss, UGA and Miami — pending the results of his test scores, which will be reported within the next couple of days. Denzel said Thursday night he was trying to contact UGA assistant Bryan McClendon to line up a visit with the Bulldogs.
“I really like Georgia a lot,” Nkemdiche said. “It’s close to home, and has a great football program. I hope I can get it worked out to get over there and see everything.”
Nkemdiche gave high marks to Ole Miss: “I had a great visit. The school and the environment was much better than I ever thought it would be. I could definitely see myself going there. I’ve just got to sit down and talk with my brother and father this weekend, and figure some things out.”
Nkemdiche could sign as early as Monday, or could wait little later in the week, depending on when he gets back his test results.
