This is the moment that most of us in the college football recruiting world have been waiting for. It will be the official end to a recruitment process that has been somewhat of a roller coaster ride to say the least.
Which hats should we expect to see on the table for Nkemdiche on national signing day (assuming he does the hat dance)?
Florida has been a late entrant into the race for the No. 1 overall recruit, and the official visit it landed from him a few weekends ago has certainly made things interesting. Meanwhile, LSU has been on Nkemdiche's interest list (247Sports.com) ever since he decommitted from Clemson.
LSU wasn't able to land an official visit, though, despite conflicting reports. Therefore, for all intents and purposes, the Tigers hat would just be up there to take up space and look good on the table.
Update 2/1/13: According to Kipp Adams of ESPN.com on Twitter, Nkemdiche will actually officially visit LSU:

Ole Miss appears to be the hands-down favorite for Nkemdiche at this point. The Rebels have been the main team on his interest list ever since he decommitted from Clemson, and for good reason. His brother, Denzel, plays linebacker for Ole Miss, and it seems to be the family preference for the two to play together.
There's also no denying the hype that head coach Hugh Freeze has created around Ole Miss recruiting.
Wherever he chooses to go, Nkemdiche is going to be a star, so this is going to be arguably the biggest signing day moment of the 2013 cycle.
Actually, there's no disputing that fact. This will be the marquee moment of the 2013 recruiting cycle.
We'll find out where the nation's No. 1 overall recruit will play college football early on Wednesday morning (Feb. 6).
