Defensive end Robert Nkemdiche from Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga., is close to having his official visits set.
Nkemdiche told ESPN RecruitingNation he will visit Ole Miss on Jan. 25 and plans to call LSU coach Les Miles this week to schedule a visit to Baton Rouge.
The nation’s top prospect recently narrowed his list of schools to LSU and Ole Miss. The Rebels are the leader for Nkemdiche, whose brother Denzel plays linebacker at Ole Miss.
“It would be hard to see myself not going to Ole Miss because it is a family thing,” Nkemdiche told ESPN last week. “My whole family wants me to go there. They are on the rise and doing a lot of good things.”
One of those good things has been Ole Miss’s recruitment of wide receiver Laquon Treadwell from Crede, Ill. The Rebels are considered “heavy favorites” to land the nation’s No. 1 wide receiver, according to ESPN.
Treadwell, who’s also considering Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, will announce his decision on Jan. 17.
