And any way too early prognostication as to Nkemdiche's impact in Oxford aside (should be noted that most of the busts have endured self-inflicted wounds), Harvey-Clemons' only obstacle may be something he can't control - his size.
He can be a safety or an Alec Ogletree type hybrid linebacker. We've talked before about the coaches' differing views. This season Harvey-Clemons played sparingly, but at Grantham's "star" position.
