Did Nkemdiche not go to any camps because his friends weren't invited?
Hey Trojans, LSU's 74 are better than your 75.
I kept hearing that since he is the #1 that he feels like he has nothing to prove which I guess is fair. I would like to see how he responds if Rueben Foster or Montravious Adams overtakes him. Maybe he'll come out to play.
No question Nkemdiche is a great talent but is he really worth having on your team? Seems like a future "cancer" imo. If he doesn't get what he wants, he'll cause trouble. It's kind of sad really because by all accounts he is a genuinely nice kid.
Some of this is getting so ridiculous that the thought has to come into your mind that he is trolling Clemson hard. Since it's AJC I take it with a grain of salt but the most telling part of that article was the comment about OM offering the Carter kid and Nkemdiche saying if Clemson doesn't offer him then he may look at OM a little harder. What about the other friends he's gotten to Clemson? Do they not matter anymore? This is going to turn out ugly imo. Don't be suprised if he holds off signing his LOI until after his buddies have signed with their school. Then he signs where he wants to go. Otherwise, his buddies might not have an LOI to sign from Clemson. We may be witnessing the greatest recruiting game we've seen.
Top 10? Is that it?
Who are these people? I am not positive, but I believe the Auburn 247 board reported from the very beginning that Stoops was never even offered the Auburn job
It also does matter that we think our defensive coordinator is better, because it means the comparison you tried to make to the bammers obsession with this kid is not a valid comparison. bammers still obsess over this kid. bammers still wish they could get this kid. Not 1 Auburn fan on planet Earth still has those feelings over Stoops
WRobbins touched on it...How would you feel if you were one of the other players? knowing you got a scolly to Clemson like this?
3 years later...
Nkemdiche on the phone with an NFL team: "What do you mean you won't draft my teammates too? So you're saying you draft me and I have no choice in the matter? WHAT KIND OF A SCREWED UP WORLD IS THIS ANYWAY???"
Does anyone else see this being a JaMarcus Russell situation, whereby Nkemdiche get's a big contract in the NFL and then goes broke by spending all of his money on his friends.
You pretty much already have hijacked this thread by brining up something nobody else cares about. Keep Stoops and continue losing 4 games or more just like you have done over the last decade. Who cares!
What pointless flame did I make? The original poster and a large percentage of the posters bashing the kid in this thread are bammers who are only butthurt because he didnt pick their school. Excuse me for pointing out those facts

Afraid of competition. Wants just to do his 3 years. Dick around with his HS friends and go tio the draft. Wants nothing to do with putting in the work or sacrifice to win a ring.

I Ain't got no Worries - Lebron James
Yup. this is why he didn't go to any camps this year.
He has dabo wrapped around his little finger.
This is sad. Clemson will bow down to his request.
Recruiting is nothing more than a "game".
If Dabo doesn't take a stand here, he'll look like a cheapskate, unless of course he wants Nkemdiche to basically be the head coach.
"DOMINATE the state" - James Franklin 1/11/14
Doesn't seem like he is really trying to prove he is the best right now... I'm sure he got invited to the opening? why didn't he go? And another thing what camp has he shown up to and just dominated? Not one... seems like he is a bust ready to happen and its sad that dabby dab is letting an entire football team be ran by a kid... if I was dabo I would remind him that there is not one school in the nation that is going to take the deal that he already has in place let alone more... and honestly he is stuck anyway didn't the QB already get approved to transfer to Clemson.. he wont be able to do that again...
Walking up these hills you have no choice but to be fast!
I don't think he did get invited to the opening, if you don't go to camps you don't get an invite.
That's like whoa!!!!
I remember when Pryor did not go to any camps, and everyone called him out for not wanting to prove he is the number 1 player.
And he never lived up to the hype.
wasn't due to a lack of talent
Never said it was.
That's Dabo being Dabo
Yes and no, I suppose.
RN is an outstanding talent. We all wanted him and thought strongly we would get him. However, nobody knew we would have to offer three of his teammates that we would never have offered otherwise to get him. That's a red flag.
Knowing what I know now, I would rather go get Demarcus Walker who is in his own rite a great talent, top 50 nationally. Rather have a top 50 player at the position and use the other 3 schollys for other elite recruits than #1 and 3 guys we don't want. Pretty simple really. But yes, we all thought we'd get him and now we won't. Given our class ranking and who is left on our board, looks like we'll be A-ok. Especially since we look pretty good for DW right now...obviously, things can change...
lol, like WR I. Jones who picked FSU over AU.
