Nelson talks LSU vs. Bama

So far this season things have been going well for one Louisiana product. Running back Jerico Nelson (5'10, 198, 4.5) informed just how well things have been going as well as an update on his recruiting cycle.

"My team is currently 8-0," said Nelson. "I'm leading my team in touchdowns. I have 17 scores on the ground, 2 in the air, and I also threw for another 2."

The Destrehan High School product has been hearing from just about all of his top teams and he is looking forward to seeing two of them play next week.

"I hear from coach Porter at LSU, coach Burns at Alabama, coach Hevesy at Florida and coach Trooper at Tennessee the most," Nelson explained. "I haven't heard from Miami in a while though.

"The teams that keep in touch with me the most are the ones that I consider as being the most devoted to me," Nelson added. "I know the coaches have busy schedules, so when they take the time to speak with me it shows me a lot."

In some of his free time away from the gridiron, Nelson has had the opportunity to watch the Tigers in action.

"The LSU vs. Kentucky game was pretty good," said Nelson. "I thought when Hester got dinged up a little that hurt LSU towards the end. Hester is a power back and I think his injury prevented him from getting some of those tough 3rd and short yards. It probably cost LSU the game. Before the game I thought LSU was going to win by two scores, but Kentucky didn't look like that bad of a team.

"The Auburn game was really good," Nelson continued. "I thought LSU played tough and they looked good out there. Even with the loss to Kentucky and the close game against Auburn, I still believe LSU is the best team in college football right now."

Nelson will be making a trip next weekend to Alabama for an official visit to watch two of his top teams battle it out on the gridiron in person.

"I am going to the LSU vs. Alabama next weekend for an official visit," Nelson stated. "I think it should be a good game. LSU has a lot of talent and Alabama has some, but they are kind of still coming up. I feel like both teams are well coached. I think the outcome of the game will either come down to athletes or coaching. I can't tell you who I think is going to win because this will be a big rival game especially since coach Saban previously coached at LSU and so reallly anything could happen. Personally though I would take good coaching over good talent."

So which coach would Nelson select?

"I can't answer that," Nelson answered jokingly.
