The most interesting aspect of Oklahoma State defensive line commitment Nelson Mbanasor out of Pflugerville Hendrickson is where he will play. The 6-3, 250-pound Mbanasor certainly looks the part of a football player as we spied him on campus before he departed back for home. He posted a couple of times on Twitter including a copy of his picture below and wrote "This is for you Stillwater."
Watching Mbanasor on tape, he can play defensive end, both stand up and hand on the ground. He can also play defensive tackle. He can play anywhere in a three-man front. He is very good at sliding off blocks and makes most of his tackles in the backfield. He also is really good at drawing attention and freeing up defensive teammates.
When he committed to Oklahoma State back on May 24, he had said he was hoping to make an unofficial visit with his family this summer and the last two days they had that opportunity.
"Yes sir, and I had a lot of fun. There are great people there," Mbanasor said. "I toured the campus, met with the academic staff, was with the coaches and got to watch a (summer conditioning) workout."
Mbanasor spent a lot of his time with defensive line coach Joe Bob Clements.
The visit may have gone a long way in cementing Mbanasor's commitment. His brother P.J. is slated to start at cornerback this season at OU. A lot of OSU fans are concerned about a late Oklahoma offer, but forget any late offer. Since his commitment to Oklahoma State, he has been offered by Arkansas and Purdue. I don't think Purdue is anything to worry about, but Arkansas is going to flash that SEC logo.
Mbanasor said he is good with his pledge and he really liked what he saw on his visit. He also said his plans the rest of the summer are to work out in Pflugerville and get ready for his senior season.
