Robert Nkemdiche Could Be An Immediate Starter For Clemson

SB Nation’s excellent Clemson Tigers blog, Shakin' The Southland, has a look at what the commitment of Robert Nkemdiche means for the Tigers.

Every article about Nkemdiche mentions his work ethic as a player who has wanted to be the No. 1 overall recruit in the nation. He looks like he’s been very well coached in technique, I have to commend his coaches. He fires off the ball low and understands leverage, plays behind his pads, his hand usage is good, and his power and quickness are outstanding. He also has the ability to stand up and rush too, as Bama recruited him as a possible JACK linebacker. As I stated above he also played DT as a sophomore. He’s a 5-technique SDE at Clemson, with an ability to move in at the 3-tech in passing situations like Da’Quan Bowers did.

He starts from day 1, this is a future 1st Rd NFL pick if he stays healthy.

That’s high praise, but warranted, given Nkemdiche’s abilities.
