Want to see another side of Robert Nkemdiche? Click on the video above.
Nkemdiche leads the 2011 AJC’s Super 11 team, as the first Georgia high school senior to be ranked as the nation’s No. 1 overall college prospect. Not only that, Nkemdiche is the consensus No. 1 (a rarity) with the four major recruiting services – Rivals, Scout, ESPN and 247sports.com.
What’s the latest with Nkemdiche’s recruiting? He’s 100-percent committed to Clemson, will go see his older brother play at least one game for Ole Miss this season, is unsure if he will take official visits to any other schools, and if he does it may be USC and Oregon, according to multiple reports.
Back to the Super 11: It’s one of the AJC’s biggest traditions and events of the year. The list is compromised of the state’s top 11 high school football players – not college prospects. We’ll have our own AJC recruiting rankings out later this fall.

Back to Nkemdiche: How often will you get the chance to see the nation’s No. 1 overall prospect play in person? Not often. Well, never before in the history of Georgia high school football.
You can watch Nkemdiche and several other of the state’s top prospects this upcoming Saturday in the Georgia Dome as part of the Corky Kell Classic. Nkemdiche will be in the 11:45 a.m. game. Here’s a breakdown of the top prospects in each game:
9 a.m. Chattahoochee vs. Kell
11:45 a.m. McEachern vs. Grayson:
2:30 p.m. North Gwinnett vs. Colquitt County
5:30 p.m. Peachtree Ridge vs. Camden County
8:30 p.m. Walton vs. Brookwood
LANGLEY NAMES VISITS: Kell safety Brendan Langley, who committed to South Carolina earlier this month, has revealed his five official visits: Miami (vs. N.C. State, Sept. 29), South Carolina (vs. UGA, Oct. 6), Tennessee (vs. Alabama, Oct. 20), Florida (vs. Missouri, Nov. 3), and UCLA (vs. USC, Nov. 17). “There’s nothing for South Carolina to be worried about,” -Langley told the AJC. “I’m 100-percent committed to South Carolina. This is the biggest decision of my life, and my parents want me to visit some places to compare to South Carolina. I know nothing will compare to South Carolina.” At onetime Langley had UGA and Alabama as his co-leaders before settling on South Carolina.
UGA RECRUIT SCORES TWICE: ESPN, Rivals, Scout and 247sports had representatives in the Charlotte area to see a heap of college prospects in the Friday showdown between North Carolina powerhouses Butler High School and Mallard Creek. Tennessee-bound QB Riley Ferguson threw a pair of TD passes to UGA WR commit Uriah LeMay in the 27-6 win by Butler. Ferguson was also intercepted thrice in the third quarter. UGA WR target Marquez North scored Mallard Creek’s only touchdown on a 9-yard run.
