Tigers Offer SS Maurice Nelson

The Tigers have officially extended an offer to one of the south's finest defensive backs- SS Maurice Nelson out of Crestwood High School. Nelson projects as either a strong safety or linebacker at the next level.

Maurice Nelson (6'1,205,4.5) now has two offers on the table. One from Maryland, and one from the Clemson Tigers.

But the fun doesn't stop there. Florida State, Michigan, and Notre Dame have been by Crestwood over the course of the last few days to see Maurice in action. The Seminoles could actually be following the Tigers with an offer of their own at any time.

"I am pretty open right now. I like Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia, Maryland and NC State. I am looking at coaching staffs and for a chance to win a National Championship. I would love to play with my brother but I have to wait and see what is best for me," says Nelson

Nelson's brother Roosevelt, a linebacker for Clemson, figures to be a key ingredient in the recruiting process.

"Nelson has always wanted to play at either Clemson or Florida State, but he won't rule anything out during the recruiting process," said Coach Jackson. "I have spoken to Brad Scott, and Rick Stockstill and they know of both Nelson and Morant and they are very interested. He has just about qualified core-wise and he is working on preparing for the ACT/SAT."

We'll keep you posted, as we receive more information on this impressive athlete.
