To be a freshman and be a leader, particularly in the Southeastern Conference, is rare, in the words of head coach Hugh Freeze. However, Ole Miss redshirt freshman linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche has done just that.

“There’s no age, there’s no perfect rubric for being a leader,” Nkemdiche said. “If you want to be courageous and step up and lead by example, lead vocally, why not? If my teammates take that into their perspective and respect that, why not keep doing it and show up every weekend?”

After good, solid practices over the weekend, head coach Hugh Freeze wasn’t happy with the way his team performed on Tuesday.

After good, solid practices over the weekend, head coach Hugh Freeze wasn’t happy with the way his team performed on Tuesday.

“Disappointed, really disappointed,” Freeze said. “I didn’t think the attitude was bad. I just thought the effort was half-hearted. I thought we coasted through a lot of practice.”

Freeze went on to say that there is no excuse for the effort not being there each and every day.

Defensive Lineman Robert Nkemdiche

Nkemdiche is undoubtedly the top player in the state of Georgia and will most likely be ranked as the top player in the entire country in 2013. He stands at 6’5,” 271 pounds, and runs a 4.6 40-yard dash. He recorded 19 sacks and, on the other side of the ball, rushed for 528 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior at Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga. Nkemdiche is a physical freak who could play defensive end, defensive tackle or linebacker in a 3-4 scheme at the next level. While Alabama is thought to be his early leader, Ole Miss signed his older brother, Denzel, in the 2011 signing class.
