After responding to a call that a male had fallen from a hotel room window at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead, Atlanta police found the All-SEC draft prospect conscious and breathing and transported Nkemdiche to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Police reported to ESPN.com that the hotel room window was broken. The report adds that "it appears that the victim broke the window and then walked approximately 15 feet and climbed over a wall and fell approximately 15 feet."

Police reported finding a small amount of suspected marijuana inside the room. No charges had been filed as of Sunday afternoon.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said in a statement. "We are still learning about the matter, but obviously Robert's well-being is our greatest concern."

Nkemdiche attended Grayson High School, just outside Atlanta in Loganville.

ESPN's No. 1 overall prospect when he signed with Ole Miss in 2013, Nkemdiche is now one of the top prospects for the 2016 NFL draft. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. lists Nkemdiche as the No. 5 prospect on his "Big Board" and the top defensive tackle.
