Chris Nelson likes three early
"The season is going pretty good," said Chris Nelson. "We beat Murphy on Thursday night. We won in overtime. I believe I was 19-of-26 for 190 yards and a touchdown. We play Williamson this week at home.
"I feel like I have been doing pretty good overall this year. I feel like as each week passes by I am getting better. I have over 800 yards passing on the season, and I have three rushing touchdowns so far this year."
Nelson's reputation is gaining momentum with schools from coast-to-coast keeping their name in front of him with cards and letters.
"I have not received any offers yet, but I have been getting a ton of mail," he said. "I have been receiving interest from Alabama, Auburn, UCLA, Ole Miss and Illinois. I haven't been to any games yet. I plan on going to the Alabama-South Carolina game and Alabama-LSU game though."
Three schools quickly jumped out for Nelson when asked about favorites.
"I like Florida, Alabama and Auburn," he said. "Those are my top three schools right now. I don't really have an overall favorite. I like Florida a lot, but I have not received much interest from them yet. Hopefully that will change."
Alabama: "I like the way they run their school. They are a team. I think I could fit in real good up there."
Auburn: "I feel like I could fit in well with their offense."
Florida: "I like their team and offense. I like the spread. I like the kind of athletes they always have at their school."
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound prospect expects his recruitment to focus on one position. He knows what he brings to the table and areas to improve.
"All the schools are recruiting me as a quarterback," Nelson said. "I feel like my arm strength and accuracy are my biggest strengths. I need to improve more on my footwork and technique."
