(LOGANVILLE, Ga.) — Ole Miss is rolling. Defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, the No. 1 overall recruit in the ESPN 150, kicked off national signing day on Wednesday by committing to Mississippi.
Nkemdiche chose the Rebels over LSU and Florida. Coming along for the ride will be the nation’s No. 1 receiver Laquon Treadwell, No. 1 offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, and No. 2 safety Antonio Conner.
“I feel like it’s the right place for me,” Nkemdiche said after his announcement. “I feel like they can do special things, and they’re on the rise. I feel like going to play with my brother [Denzel Nkemdiche] we can do something special.”
Mississippi finished 7-6 in 2012 under second-year head coach Hugh Freeze.
“I’m so thankful and blessed that these families have chosen to trust in us,” Freeze said. “We’ll treat these young men as our own.”
