Robert Nkemdiche and the 5 Best Recruits Visiting Ole Miss vs. Georgia Matchup
5-star defensive end Robert Nkemdiche is the biggest name in college football recruiting, and he'll be in attendance this weekend in Athens, when the Georgia Bulldogs take on the Ole Miss Rebels.
Nkemdiche will be at the game to watch his brother, Denzel, who plays for the Rebels. But he's certainly not the only big-time recruit that will be at this game.
Here's a list of the five best recruits that will be visiting for Georgia vs. Ole Miss.
Visit information via Rusty Mansell of 247Sports.com, who states the prospects are tentatively expected.
5. Shaq Wiggins, 4-Star CB, Sandy Creek (GA)
4-star cornerback and University of Georgia commit Shaq Wiggins will be in attendance for this big SEC game.
He's 5'10'', 160 pounds and runs a 4.55 40, according to Rivals.com. So he has the speed you're looking for in a defensive back, but his size is a little bit concerning.
He'll have to bulk up a bit if he wants to be able to compete against much bigger receivers in the SEC.
4. Jonathon Rumph, 4-Star WR, Holmes C.C. (MS)
Jonathon Rumph is a 4-star undecided recruit who has Georgia, Mississippi State and Tennessee all on top of his interest list, according to 247Sports. Having him in attendance for this game is going to be pretty big for the Bulldogs.
Speaking of big, Rivals.com lists Rumph at 6'5'', 215 pounds with a 4.5 40.
Having a wideout with his size and speed is a luxury on offense, so making a good impression with Rumph—who will be on an official visit, according to Rusty Mansell of 247Sports—will be very important for Georgia.
Needless to say, he's got some incredible potential as a receiver.
3. Tramel Terry, 4-Star WR, Goose Creek (SC)
He's currently committed to Georgia.
At 6'0'', 192 pounds, and with a 4.4 40-yard dash (per 247Sports), he could be a big-time player for the Bulldogs in the future.
This visit will be important for Georgia, because Terry has already deccommited from Georgia once. Although he did recommit, there's been speculation that Clemson may be able to get him to decommit from the Bulldogs yet again.
The fact that he'll be in Athens for this game is very good for Georgia.
2. Montravius Adams, 5-Star DT, Dooly County (GA)
If it wasn't for the presence of Nkemdiche at this game, Montravius Adams would be the consensus best player in attendance.
A 5-star defensive tackle, Adams looks like he could be elite at the next level. But he has not yet to make a commitment.
At 6'4'', 310 pounds, he has tremendous size for a senior in high school, but he's also very explosive, quick and skilled as a defender.
Georgia is in the running for Adams, but Alabama, Auburn, Clemson and Florida are also high on his interest list, according to 247Sports, so this is going to be a crucial visit for the Bulldogs.
1. Robert Nkemdiche, 5-Star DE, Grayson (GA)
The nation's No. 1 overall recruit for 2013, Robert Nkemdiche, will be at this game to watch his brother, Denzel, take on the Bulldogs.
What makes this interesting is that he had this to say about Georgia earlier this week in his recruiting diary for ESPN Recruiting Nation, via Kipp Adams of ESPN.com:
With Georgia, you never know what could happen. I could start falling in love with them again after I visit. They have open arms toward me and I have open arms to them going in. We will see what happens.
Ole Miss has been the "other" school for Nkemdiche, who is verbally committed to Clemson. But that statement alone should make this a very intriguing visit for Georgia fans.
Wherever Nkemdiche does end up, he appears to have potential to be a superstar, so the Bulldogs have to be feeling pretty good about the fact that he'll at the very least be in attendance for this showdown with Ole Miss.
Maybe this visit means nothing in regards to Georgia. Then again, with comments like the one above, who really knows?
