Ole Miss sophomore DL Robert Nkemdiche believes he will have a breakout season this fall.
"I can play without my head spinning," Nkemdiche said. "Everything is so calm and easy for me to pick up, and that's why I'm going to have a really big year. ... I'm going to have a huge year this year, man -- I know it." The former No. 1 recruit, 6-foot-4 and 280 pounds, underachieved while struggling with injuries during his true freshman campaign. Nobody expects those struggles to persist. "His sheer size, and he's so big and fast and agile," safety Cody Prewitt said. "You don't see very many guys like that, and I'm glad he's on our side." Added LT Laremy Tunsil, a fellow five-star 2013 recruit: "When I say he bull-rushed me, oh man. I felt all 310 [pounds] just coming at me, full of muscle, six-pack and everything. I was like, 'I see why he's No. 1.' I've never seen somebody so explosive coming off the ball in my life."
