Roberto Nelson, 6-3 JR SG Santa Barbara (Calif.) High, is ranked #5 at his position in the west. He told me recently that he's been hearing from a number of schools.
"USC, Washington, Ohio State, Nebraska, Utah, Cal, Texas...some others," said Nelson.
Nelson said coaches from a few programs have been out to see him at his high school.
"Coaches came from Washington, Ohio State and Cal," said Nelson.
Nelson has taken unofficial visits to UCLA and Ohio State. He said there are a few others he'd like to visit.
"I'm trying to get to USC, Cal and Washington for visits," said Nelson.
I asked Nelson what he's looking for in a school.
"Someplace where I can play and make an impact. You see guys coming in and making an impact right away now," said Nelson. "I also want to be with a team where I fit in. Also, I like to get up and down. So someplace where they're going to fastbreak. The location doesn't really matter -- I'll go anywhere."
I asked Nelson when he plans on making his choice.
"I'm trying to get it done going into my senior year," said Nelson. "But I'm wide open right now and I'll listen to anyone."
