Ole Miss has landed the nation's No. 1 recruit, Robert Nkemdiche (right).

Robert Nkemdiche, the nation's No. 1 recruit, committed to Ole Miss this morning in a nationally-televised ceremony at his school.

He chose Ole Miss over LSU and a host of other offers. He originally committed to Clemson but backed off that verbal pledge last fall.

The 6-foot-5, 270-pound Nkemdiche was a three-time MaxPreps All-American; he burst onto the scene after recording 18 sacks as a 10th grader.

Nkemdiche joins an Ole Miss recruiting class that features top wide receiver Laquon Treadwell.

He also has an opportunity to play alongside his older brother, Denzel, who was a standout freshman linebacker for the Rebels in 2012.

Take a look back at Robert Nkemdiche and his time with Grayson.
