DE Robert Nkemdiche of Grayson, GA told Kipp Adams of ESPN.com not to lock him in with Ole Miss just yet. “To people that do think I am a lock to Ole Miss, I will just say you never know,” Nkemdiche said. “I could end up falling in love with any other school. If schools give up, they give up, but you never know if I take a visit and fall in love. It could happen.” Nkemdiche also would not confirm his brother’s recent comments that he’s going to commit to Ole Miss soon. “I do not know about that,” Nkemdiche said. “I will have to see. If I do make my decision, I will probably hold an announcement. I am not going to say I will or if I won’t. I am still iffy-iffy. If I do commit, I think I will still take my official visits.” Nkemdiche also told the website that he hasn’t talked to Clemson since de-committing and if he visits other schools than heavy favorite Ole Miss, it may be LSU and Oregon.
WR JaQuay Williams of Fork Union Prep, VA is once again a hot commodity after decommitting from Auburn. He initiated contact with USC earlier in this week and he and his coach have been in touch with USC receivers coach Steve Spurrier Jr. Williams is trying to decide on an official visit this week to either USC or Michigan. His coach said whichever one can arrange transportation first will get the visit. Williams has taken official visits to Georgia and Texas A&M.
Northwestern junior QB Mason Rudolph has had a monster season in leading the Trojans to the 4A-Division 2 state championship game. Going into Saturday’s showdown with Greenwood, the former tight end has passed for 3787 yards and 39 touchdowns while completing 68% of his attempts. LSU has taken notice and is the first major program in with an offer. “LSU is really high on him,” Northwestern coach Kyle Richardson said. North Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama are three others showing interest at this point. Rudolph camped last summer at USC and the Gamecocks also have been in contact. This season Rudolph attended games at USC, Wake Forest, Clemson and North Carolina. He plans to visit about five or six schools this summer, but LSU stands out with him right now. “I’m excited about the LSU offer,” he said, “but I want to see what else comes in.”
DB David Kamara of Loganville, GA recently decommitted from Clemson after deciding he wanted to look around and make sure of his decision. He visited Clemson for the NC State game, was at Ole Miss for The Egg Bowl and is planning a trip to Maryland next month. When asked if it would be an official visit he said, “I don’t know yet. I’ll probably go early next month.” Kamara named Clemson, Ole Miss, Maryland and LSU as the only schools he is considering, He spoke highly of his trip to Ole Miss. “It was fun,” he said. “It was a good game-they won-and I had a good time. They are telling me they want me to come there, play early, and make an impact.” He said Clemson is telling him the same thing. “I haven’t talk to them in a couple of weeks though,” he added. Kamara was unsure whether or not he will visit LSU and did not give a timetable for a final decision. All four schools on his list are even according to Kamara.
USC offensive line coach Shawn Elliott visited junior OL Donnell Stanley of Latta Tuesday. The Gamecocks are among his favorites. He named Clemson, USC, LSU, Alabama, Ohio State and North Carolina as his top six in no order. The visit with Ellliott was pretty quiet. “He just came by to catch up with me and see how I was doing,” said Stanley. “We didn’t talk about much. Things are going really well with (USC). I talk to them all of the time.” Stanley visited Alabama this past weekend for their contest with Auburn. “It went really good but we left at half time because it was a blow out,” he said. “We wanted to beat the traffic. I didn’t really talk to anyone and I’ve already seen the campus so we just came home.” Stanley is expecting several more coaches to come by his school over the upcoming weeks. “I know a bunch are coming to see me but I can’t really tell you who they are,” he admitted. Stanley does not have a leader.
DB Shaq Wiggins of Tyrone, GA, who is a Georgia commitment but is looking around, has set two more official visits with Florida January 19th and Ole Miss January 26th. He’s going to Georgia this weekend and is scheduled to visit USC January 12th.
