Saban thinks Robert Nkemdiche could be ‘really good TE’


Ole Miss Rebels defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche has made headlines this season by working a two-way player, and Alabama head coach Nick Saban has taken notice.

Speaking at a press conference today, Saban discussed the man his team will have to contain on, likely, both sides of the ball in Tuscaloosa on Saturday.

“He’s a really, really good athlete,” Saban said during a press conference on Monday. “He’s a very instinctive football player. He’s got great size. He’s quick. He can pass rush. They put him over on offense, and you see his athleticism — the guy could probably be a really good tight end if he wanted to be, or if they wanted him to be.”

Saban should know how good a player Nkemdiche is, having recruited him out of Grayson High School in Loganville, Georgia. Since joining Ole Miss instead, Nkemdiche has 60 tackles (10 for a loss) and three sacks. Playing on offense this year, he has one catch for a 31 yard touchdown and a one-yard touchdown run.

Moreover, with great size at 6-foot-4, 296 pounds, Nkemdiche could potentially be a force at tight end if he committed to the switch full-time.

Needless to say, it’s going to be a great game this weekend.
