Bulldog verbal Nero Nelson talks about his time in Starkville.

Hollandale-Simmons standout out Nero Nelson took his official visit to Mississippi State this weekend. The long time Bulldog pledge, reports that his time on campus was all about his new family in Starkville. While on his trip, Nelson was able to reconnect with an old friend.

"The visit went real good," Treveon Nelson said. "I enjoyed myself it was a good time being around the Bulldog family.

"Traver Jung was my host, another delta guy. I have known him for a long time and he is sort of like a brother to me. He showed me around and just made sure I had a good time. I am expecting him to have a big year this year and I am looking forward to playing with him."

Nelson reports that the weekend was filled with activities including the Bulldogs men's basketball win over rival Ole Miss.

"We had fun at the basketball game and it was good that they won," Nelson said. "It was a great atmosphere and it was just good to see the Bulldog family in there supporting the team.

"They best part of the visit was just being with the Bulldog family and spending time with the other players. It's a family up there and they made me feel like I was already a part of it."

The Bulldogs picked up a commitment earlier today from four star wide out Jamal Couch. Nelson reports that he had the chance to bond with the Phenix City, Alabama product over the course of the weekend.

"I really like him," Nelson said of Couch. "He seems like a good guy and I think he will be a good fit for the Bulldog family. We had a good time together this weekend and just got to enjoy being on campus and being around everybody.

"Everybody up there had a good time and everybody was just seeing what it was like to be up there."

With football on hold for a bit, Nelson plans to take part in some spring sports before he closes out his prep sports career.

"I am going to be running track and playing baseball," Nelson said. "I am going to be focused on all of that and on my grades. I am going to be working out and working hard to be ready for when I get back up there."
