Now that football season is over, No. 1 overall ESPN 150 prospect Robert Nkemdiche (Loganville, Ga./Grayson) says he is averaging about 30 minutes per game playing basketball for his school, while also working with a personal trainer on power lifting and speed drills. A couple of schools still hoping to sign the five-star prospect spent time during the last two weeks trying to bond with the 6-foot-4, 272-pound senior.

First up was LSU, with the Tigers' defensive line coach making the trip to see Nkemdiche last week.

“I spent time with Coach Brick (Haley), and we went out to eat,” Nkemdiche said. “He also came to watch me practice basketball. He tells me to go where my heart goes, and he feels he has the tools to help me get to the next level. Honestly, I like LSU a lot. He says that he could help me develop the tools to get to the NFL. He says if I come in there and work, I will be perfectly fine and play as a freshman. I plan to give them an official visit.”
