Wichita Falls (Texas) Rider All-American wide receiver David Nelson, who recently decommitted from Notre Dame, is visiting Oklahoma State this weekend, his father confirmed Thursday night.
"We are going to go to Oklahoma State this weekend and give them a hard look," said Roy Nelson, David's father. "We really like the way they feature their wide receivers there. I saw what they did with that Woods youngster who went on to be a number one draft choice with the 49ers. They really turned him into a dynamic player."
As for the situation with Notre Dame, Mr. Nelson said their family was disappointed with the handling of head coach Tyrone Willingham, who was fired.
"They mishandled the situation with Ty Willingham, and we have a problem with a school that doesn't honor the contract with their coach," said Mr. Nelson. "Because of that we have decided to explore other options."
Those other options start with Oklahoma State, but also include Iowa (12/17), Florida, Nebraska and Kansas State.
"We will try to hit two or three of the schools before the U.S. Army All-American Game (in San Antonio on Jan. 15 at noon on NBC), and then hit several more after the game and make a decision after that," added Roy Nelson.
The 6-6, 200-pound Nelson has good speed and is one of the top high school receivers in the nation. He is currently playing basketball for Wichita Falls Rider.
