The nation’s top recruit, Robert Nkemdiche, is expected to choose the Ole Miss Rebels on National Signing Day, but a late push from another SEC squad could make things interesting down the stretch.

Nkemdiche went on his official visit to LSU and clearly loved his time in Baton Rouge.

The five-star defensive end met Shaq and enjoyed a Wale concert all while being treated like royalty during his visit. Nkemdiche was joined by his high school teammate, David Kamara, who is also a LSU target.

The two Grayson High standouts would love to play college football together and the LSU visit has spiked the hopes of Tigers fans across the nation.

Nkemdiche has built a special connection with recruiting coordinator and running backs coach Frank Wilson. Their bond could play a big part in the decision, but it is still hard to picture Nkemdiche wearing purple and yellow.

As great as the visit was, it still appears that Nkemdiche will choose the Rebels and join his brother Denzel on the defense in Oxford. LSU may be making a strong last minute push, but the wishes of his mother should lead to him signing with Ole Miss on National Signing Day.
