08:24 AM ET 07.07 | The No. 1 college football prospect in the nation says his commitment to Clemson is a "done deal" if the Tigers offer one more of his Grayson High School teammates, safety Ryan Carter. "I am waiting on Clemson to offer Ryan; when that happens, it's locked -- it's a done deal -- it's over," Robert Nkemdiche told the AJC. Nkemdiche says the primary reason he picked Clemson over LSU and Alabama, among others, was because the Tigers already had commitments from his two his Grayson teammates, RB Wayne Gallman and DB David Kamara. Also, earlier this week, former Grayson QB Nick Schuessler decided to give up his football scholarship to Mississippi State to be a preferred walk-on at Clemson (Nkemdiche has lived with Schuessler's family at times).

Andy Staples wrote an article on this, and while I see the point Staples is trying to make, I think Dabo is treading dangerous ground here and really needs to be careful.

It's not as simple as "using leverage while he can because he has none later", like Staples thinks. RN has leverage later, don't kid yourself. He can whine to the press/Twit, cause probs internally, threaten to transfer, etc.

This is where the school has to make the right decision. I hope they don't take a guy they are not going to give a chance to play, just to appease a guy they really want.
