Default Who will President Trump nominate to fill Scalia seat?

There has been a lot of talk about who Trump is picking/nominating for staff and cabinet positions. But, I think a more important question is who will he nominate for SCOTUS and how many will he be nominating over the next four or eight years?
He did give a list of possibles during the campaign:
1. Keith Blackwell
2. Charles Canady
3. Steven Colloton
4. Allison Eid
5. Neil Gorsuch
6. Raymond Gruender
7. Thomas Hardiman
8. Raymond Kethledge
9. Joan Larsen
10. Mike Lee
11. Thomas Lee
12. Edward Mansfield
13. Federico Moreno
14. William Pryor
15. Margaret A. Ryan
16. Amul Thapar
17. Timothy Tymkovich
18. David Stras
19. Diane Sykes
20. Don Willett
21. Robert Young
However, he certainly isn't obligated to pick from that list.
Personally I'd love to see him nominate Senator Ted Cruz, not only because he would make an excellent supreme court judge, but also because it will be fun to watch the D's in congress go into hysterics.

Also, I expect he will be nominating two in his first term.

What do you think?
