Monte Nelson is one of Louisville top defensive tackle targets in the Class of 2013 and the three-star prospect from Plantation, Fla., told InsideTheVille.com he will "probably" visit Louisville in July.
A 6'2, 320 pond defensive lineman, Nelson, who runs a 5.1 forty, has developed a solid relationship with Louisville assistant Clint Hurtt and appears to be strongly considering Charlie Strong's Cards a possible college option.
"I've been talking to him at least once a week," Nelson said. "Everything just seems great with Louisville. I'm interested because they're a young, up and coming team and I feel like they can do a lot. They're recruiting a lot of players from Florida. I know B.J. Dubose.
"After talking with Coach Hurtt it seems like it would be best if I took an unofficial visit to check them out. I just like Louisville, I'm high on their list and I would have a chance to come in and compete."
Nelson, who recorded 45 tackles and 10 sacks as a junior, is a physically impressive prospect who impresses with his aggressiveness in the trenches.
"They [UofL coaches] like my aggressiveness and the way I play the three-technique," Nelson said. "I'm very versatile and agile to help the defense. That's what they're looking for from a nose-guard in three-technique."
"Everything is going great right now," Nelson said. "I haven't gotten anything since spring but I'm satisfied with my offers right now. I had a Top 5, but now there is no longer aTop 5 [list]."
Nelson said he will get serious about making a college decision this fall and plans to take a few official visits before he decides on a school.
"Education, playing time and the depth chart [are important factors," said Nelson.
Nelson said he wants to major in broadcast communications.
