Clemson lands country's top recruit

Clemson has done it again.

The Tigers lured in the No. 1 player in the ESPN 150. Defensive end Robert Nkemdiche committed to Clemson on Thursday, according to Kipp Adams of ESPN RecruitingNation. In 2008, Clemson also got a commitment from the nation's top prospect, Da'Quan Bowers.

Clemson has eight commitments in its 2013 class, and three of them are ESPN150 commits. First-year defensive coordinator Brent Venables has yet to call a play for the Tigers, but he's already made a huge impact on the defense by helping bring in Nkemdiche.
