Ole Miss Offered Football Scholarship to Best Friend in Bid to Lure Nation's Top Recruit

When you befriend the Nation’s No. 1 overall recruit, good things happen to you. Ole Miss wants to land top-rated defensive end Robert Nkemdiche badly. So badly, in fact, the Rebels have offered his teammate and best friend, cornerback David Kamara, a scholarship to play alongside him.

Nkemdiche was excited.

“Yes, I like it a lot, and Ole Miss has a great chance of getting both of us to sign there,” Nkemdiche told the AJC on Wednesday. “My brother is at Ole Miss, and now David can go with me … that’s a big, big, big, big, big plus for Ole Miss. I’m really happy about all of this.”

It’s not clear whether Kamara can play at SEC speed. He has not been rated yet by the national recruiting services.The two are hoping for a similar offer from Clemson and plan to visit LSU, Vanderbilt, Georgia and Alabama. Though Ole Miss may have the inside track, as Nkemdiche’s older brother Denzel is a safety at Ole Miss.
