Recruiting Scene: Nelson held nearly 20 scholarship offers when Wolfpack defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen worked his way into the mix.
He made Nelson a priority and after a couple of weeks he had State right in the mix with Arkansas. The Wolfpack was able to get him on campus for an early-February trip that sealed the deal.
Why NC State? "I loved everything about it. The people there, the fanbase, the coaches, the environment. Everything was great."
