A great school is a collection of great people. One person did not make Penn State, and one person will not bring it down. #WeAre

That kid is so insightful and mature he makes me look so freaking pathetic.
Thats some pretty dope gear. Digging the cleats.
RecruitingAJC: Sorry Clemson fans, recruiting is NOT over with Robert Nkemdiche: http://t.co/wgNtNXLS
RecruitingAJC: Robert Nkemdiche says his Clemson commit is "done deal" ... IF Tigers offer another HS teammate: http://t.co/wgNtNXLS
RecruitingAJC: That would be a 5-for-1 deal
RecruitingAJC: Nkemdiche wants Clemson to offer DB Ryan Carter, who has offers from Ole Miss, GaState, Tulane: http://t.co/wgNtNXLS
Nkemdiche has quite the ego.

Kid is going to flame out or make one hell of a business man.
Helping your teammates to get a visit is an admirable thing to do. Essentially blackmailing schools into offering them? Not so much.

In business he might not hold all the cards!
@RowlffDogg: Clemson's top recruit asks them to offer his friends. Pitt's recruits are asked to tell their friends to go to their games.

You got that right. I understand that he is the cream of the crop, but any program willing to offer all those kids just to appease a recruit is asking for trouble. Clemson needs to set this kid straight.
Who does this guy think he is?
No way I'd offer that kid if I were Clemson, absolutely not. Kids really good, but nobody is worth 5 scholarship offers. They already took two other borderline kids to get him on board, enough is enough.
Hopefully he goes to Ole Miss with his entire HS football team, and they finish last in the West every year because he's the only player worth a damn on the team.

Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
I honestly don't have a problem with this... except that it's corny and gives a small window into the type of kid you are recruiting (Keenan Allen worked out pretty good so far for Cal).
If a coach wants to set that type of precedent and open himself up to this negotiation by recruits... then so be it. I think more of this type of stuff happens than is publically scrutinized like this situation. Anzalone basically shopping the fact that he want to be in the honors program at where ever he goes could be another different yet negotiable incentive to commit.
Well that is totally different. It is not an absurd request. Asking a school to give 5 of your friends a free ride when maybe only 1 or 2 are truely worth offering is insane. I can just see Nkemdiche talking to his friends...
"Oh, I'm the king of that place... you want to come play with me? I got this, no worries."
Problem is, Clemson's already gave out a couple of bad offers to his teammates. It's not like they can draw the line right now...otherwise they'll probably be stuck with those couple kids and no Nkemdiche.
Nkemdiche needs to grow up. Just idiotic to handle your recruitment like that.
Dabo might want to rescind his offer to Nkemdiche -- could save him a lot of trouble later
Ha. funny stuff. Holding the team hostage to get who you want. Bad sign... Can only wonder what the future holds for this team lol #Mess

WE ARE! And we will always be...
lol, wow, one of the most ridiculous things I have seen and read since I started following recruiting. A HS kid is blackmailing a university. The kid has not even played a down of his senior high school football season, let alone college.
"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
Oh and what's going to prevent Nkemdiche from making Clemson offer all these kids, then dumping them on NSD to sign with someone else? That would leave Clemson holding the bags, especially if Nkemdiche waits until his teammates have sent in their LOI's.
"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
Yeah I'm thinking more like leverage
Yeah I think Backmail is the wrong word... he is not threatening them with something negative that no one else knows... He is kind of holding them hostage though. But they are the ones that keep buckling to his demands. At this point, I wouldnt be surprised if they offer that kid. Sad.

@AdamBreneman87 Good luck with that my man, could be playing TE's together.
Who is tweeting to whom here?
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
Kind of like we were stuck with holding the bag on Mike Wallace when Jelani Jenkins signed with Florida... the package deals rarely work out...
I said it at the time, and was right... Wallz is a great kid, super student/ athlete and represents the university very well. I am glad he is on the team even if he never sees a meaningful down, just a great all around kid... but he is not a D1 corner back.
