Nelson, who currently holds offers from Texas Tech, Arkansas, Kansas, Kansas State, LSU, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Texas A&M, will be tripping to Lubbock this weekend. "I will be heading to Lubbock this Saturday (June 18th)." Nelson's top five are Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Kansas.
When asked about the desire to play early Nelson responded with, "I don't want to be greedy, so I don't expect to be a starting corner my first year. I would like to contribute in some way though. I just want to do whatever I can to help my team." As a matter of fact, Nelson is placing more emphasis on the coaching staff. "I'm looking for a place with great coaches who will work me hard. I want to go somewhere where I know they will push me to be the best player I can be. I also want to be able to relate to the coaches."
Nelson is being recruited by Coach Carlos Mainord, Texas Tech's Safety coach.
Nelson has a rough commitment time frame. "I don't want to make a commitment during the season, so I will either make it before or after." Nelson is also playing his recruitment rather quietly. "I'm not someone who falls for all the hype of recruiting. I want to take my time and find the right place for me."
RaiderPower.com will catch up with Nelson after his visit to see how everything went.
