University of Mississippi defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche is in stable condition after falling from a Buckhead, Ga., hotel-room window late Saturday night.

According to CBS News, Nkemdiche reportedly broke a fourth-floor window at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, climbed out of the broken window, walked about 15 feet, then climbed over a wall and fell about 15 feet to the ground.


The junior from Loganville, Ga., was alert and conscious when paramedics arrived, according to the report.

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

Nkemdiche is one of the top prospects for the 2016 NFL draft and No. 5 overall in the rankings of prospects by ESPN.
