The 6-3, 215-pound Nelson was one of the earliest commitments for the Cowboys and, no doubt, has helped with other prospects in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex including his teammate defensive tackle Diamonte Wheeler, who is also committed and also made his official visit this weekend.
For Nelson the visit was what he needed to finish his recruitment.
"It went good, really good," said Nelson. "My parents were with me and they thought it was real good at Oklahoma State. We went before the game and took the tour and then some of us were in the locker room after the game and got to meet the players. They were coming up shaking our hand and telling us they were proud of us for making our decision.
"During the game it was real nice," continued Nelson. "We were right on the field almost, right behind the cheerleaders. I like the fans. The fans there are great."
Nelson said he was hosted by Cowboy redshirt freshman wide receiver Isaiah Anderson out of Wichita Falls High School in Texas. Nelson said he is looking at communications, sports medicine, and pharmacy as possible majors.
He reports that Bowie is off to a great start on the season as they beat Dallas Lincoln (Richetti Jones' alma mater) the first week, and last week had an interesting game.
"We beat South Garland, but the game was stopped for lightning," said Nelson. "They didn't want to stay around so they just forfeited and we really only played about half a game. We've played good and are getting better every week. This week is a big game. We play (Dallas) Skyline over at Forester Field."
From a personal standpoint Nelson is happy with his play. "I've made some big plays, some good catches," he said. "My favorite was in the first game with Lincoln, a 12-yard fade in the back of the end zone."
Nelson said there is no fade on his recruiting, especially after his visit to Stillwater.
"I'm done," he added. "I get a good feeling about signing in February with Oklahoma State."
