Recruit Finds Leverage ... And Uses It.


Robert Nkemdiche is America's #1 football recruit and he's orally committed to Clemson ... but, as Corso would say, not so fast.The Georgia defensive lineman has a 5 for 1 offer to the orange folks — he wants scholarships for 5 of his high school teammates and he's already succeeded on 3. Seems only fair to me and Andy Staples at SI.com:

Nkemdiche is using all the leverage he can within NCAA rules before he signs the National Letter of Intent, which might be the worst contract in sports. Once Nkemdiche signs, he loses every bit of leverage. A school doesn't even have to guarantee his scholarship once he signs. Once he enrolls, he'll be subject to transfer rules. He'll also be subject to rules that restrict how much he can make at an off-campus job. But now? He can ask for the moon -- at least for others.

One can only hope that this starts a trend.
