SMU Commit Solid In Win
For the 2010 season, the Katy (TX) Cinco Ranch football team is hitting on all cylinders. Going into Week 2, the Cougars have a 2-0 record and are looking to keep that momentum going. Last Friday, Cinco Ranch defeated Cypress Ridge 27-15 on the road. One of the key reasons for their success is the strength of the running game. And that includes all-state running back K.C. Nlemchi. In the win over Ridge, Nlemchi had 12 carries for 94 yards (7.8 yards per carry), including a 55-yard touchdown run. "I was pretty comfortable. And the offensive line did well," Nlemchi said. "We did good, but I have to give props to Cy Ridge. They did their thing in the second half and pretty much stopped us. We did not do well scoring in the second half, but we'll get to fixing that before next week." Another big factor in the rushing attack is that the 6-foot-1, 218-pound Nlemchi has a sidekick in the backfield with him who is complimentary. Sophomore running back Jamel James is a player to keep a close eye on as well. "For me and Jamel James, it's one-two punch combination. I feel really good with me and Jamel in the backfield together," Nlemchi, who is the No. 45 running back in the nation on the Scout.com rankings said. "I think it's the best combo in the state." But before the addition of James, Nlemchi was doing it solo and doing it well. And those results paid off as Nlemchi had a couple of Division I offers to choose from. In late April, Nlemchi decided he was going to take his talents to Dallas, TX with a verbal commitment to SMU. Now that it is fall, many SMU fans want to know when he will take a closer look at things and head that way for an official visit. "I am definitely going to call coach (Jeff) Reinebold on that (taking an official visit). I plan to take something during the Christmas break," Nlemchi said. Because the talent Katy area back has had a great deal of success, a few other programs are still actively recruiting him. He said that he is still solid to his SMU commitment, but may take a couple of other visits. "I'll probably take a couple more visits as well. Right now it looks like SMU is about the only one for sure thought," Nlemchi said. "Arkansas wants me to come up there and visit and I may go. It's high school and it's my senior year. I just want to travel, go out there and see what it's all about." This season through two games, Nlemchi has rushed for 192 yards and three touchdowns.
