WXIA -- The consensus top recruit in the nation Robert Nkemdiche has announced he will attend Mississippi. 

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound defensive end from Loganville, Ga., has been on several programs' wish list for more than a year, but Ole Miss appeared to be his destination for months because of close family ties.
