Class of 2016 prospect Nygel Edmonds is already a highly-coveted prospect, but his younger brother, Class of 2018 running back Nolan Edmonds, may not be far behind him.
The younger Edmonds, who attends Atlanta (Ga.) Lovett, recently got his first taste of the competitive on-campus camp environment when he visited Wake Forest and North Carolina.

"Wake Forest was a great school - great for academics and great for athletics," Edmonds said. "I think I did well up there. I know the coach was talking to me a little bit after. I like how their offense, and I like how they're going to spread it out but they also run it as well. It's similar to what we do at my school."
The 5-foot-9, 174-pound rising freshman was competing on his first on-campus event with the Demon Deacons, and he said he thinks he handled the competition well.
"It was pretty good," Edmonds said. "I feel like I'm kind of used to it because I've been to other camps, just not at a school before. But I feel like it was a good experience for me, starting off young so I know what I'm getting into."
While camping with the Tar Heels, Edmonds said he and his brother got the VIP treatment - but not before he impressed running backs coach Larry Porter.
"He really liked me," Edmonds said of Porter. "He said that he's going to look out for me down the line. He also gave me and my brother a tour of the campus and it gave us a chance to get to know him and to get to know what they have to offer in terms of academics and athletics. It was really nice. They have a great facility."
While he knows that his brother's star will only continue to rise, Edmonds said he's enjoying a behind the scenes look at the recruiting process before his high school career begins in earnest.
"It's really good," he said. "It's helpful because I'm young and I get to go to places that he gets to go and I get to get exposed to all the stuff he's seeing. It's something that I will already know more about when it comes time for me."
