Chris Nelson talks first offer

Chris Nelson, quarterback from Theodore, Ala., has received his first scholarship offer and look for more following spring evaluations. He is hearing from several programs and plans to visit one in-state school this weekend.

"I have received an offer from South Alabama just recently," said Chris Nelson. "It feels great. It's a good offer. It's close to home. I am still keeping options open though."

"I am hearing from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Michigan and Illinois. Those are the main schools showing interest in me. Right now I like Auburn, Florida State and Alabama."

Nelson will travel to Auburn this weekend to attend their A-Day game.

"I am looking forward to the trip down there," he said. "They have been sending me a lot of letters. They want me to come to their camps this summer. I like their school. I like the things they do with their spread offense."
