Roberto Nelson, 6-3 JR SG Santa Barbara (Calif.) High, gave us a brief update recently on his recruitment.
"I'm hearing from Ohio State, USC – most of the Pac-10, Kansas and Kentucky," said Nelson.
Nelson has yet to receive any offers from those schools, but said he has received some offers from other schools. However, he has his sights set on playing at a high level.
When asked if he has visited any schools, Nelson said, "I've been to USC and UCLA. I went to Ohio State a couple years ago for a football game. It was great, I loved it there. And I have a lot of family back there."
Nelson said he hopes to make a decision relatively early.
"I'd like to decide by the end of summer," said Nelson. "But I'm still wide open. I want to go to the place that will give me the best chance of playing right away. Also, the tradition and coach are important. Location doesn't really matter."
