With Gallman committed, can Clemson snag Nkemdiche next?

Throughout the last few weeks I've discussed the recruitment of top Class of 2013 recruit Robert Nkemdiche.

The Grayson High School (Loganville, Georgia) product is the most sought defensive end in the country, and he has two prep teammates that are in high demand as well: David Kamara and Wayne Gallman.

Programs across the country, possibly in part to land Nkemdiche's services, have offered Kamara and Gallman scholarships knowing that the trio share a close relationship. One of those schools is Clemson, and the Tigers were already successful in reeling one player in.

According to Kerry Capps of OrangeandWhite.com, Gallman verbally committed to Clemson on Wednesday.

The 6-1, 200-pound running back is rated as a four-star prospect by Scout.com and a three-star prospect by Rivals.com. He chose the Tigers over offers from Georgia, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia Tech and South Carolina. Gallman, whose dad played football at Florida A&M, rushed for 703 yards and scored eight touchdowns as a junior.

With Gallman on board, is Kamara next? The defensive back currently lists Clemson as his top school. But most importantly for Dabo Swinney and his staff, could Nkemdiche be next as well?

While he weighs various offers from major powers, the defensive end has maintained that he wants to play with Kamara at the next level. However, he also has said he would like to play with his brother, who currently plays for Hugh Freeze and Ole Miss. Meanwhile, many recruiting analysts still maintain that Alabama is the team to beat for Nkemdiche. Email dave.miller@nationalfootballpost.com or follow me on Twitter at Miller_Dave
