An Evolving List for Nelson

Plantation (Fla.) defensive tackle Monty Nelson came up with what he thought was a solid top five. But with new offers and new interest, Nelson has remade his top five ... and could possible do it again.

MADISON - Plantation (Fla.) defensive tackle Monty Nelson recently announced that his top five schools were West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wake Forest, Louisville and Illinois. However Nelson has made changes he now has a new top five - listing Wisconsin, Illinois, Pittsburgh, Louisville and Michigan State as his top five.

With Nelson changing his top five in less then a week, his current top five is not set in stone either according to him.

"Yes it can change," Nelson told Badger Nation. "I'll get new offers each week and new coaches will talk to me each week so it can change."

Although Nelson's list can change, it doesn't seem like Wisconsin will drop out of his top five anytime soon. The 6-2, 320-pound Nelson – a three-star recruit ranked the No.75 defensive tackle in the country by - has formed a good relationship with his recruiting coach Charlie Partridge.

"Coach Partridge and I talk to him on the phone all the time," Nelson said. "We talk at least once a week and I've been talking to him since the start of spring. I feel like Wisconsin would be a great place for me. I would like to take a visit there sometime in the fall."

Although Partridge and many other coaches have come to visit Nelson during the spring evaluation period, Nelson said no particular college is recruiting him harder than others.

"All schools are recruiting me about the same at the moment," said Nelson, "so not one school is standing out."

With summer approaching, most high school kids will be attending football camps to try and improve there stock and pick up some college offers. But for Nelson, he can't say that's what he'll be doing this summer.

"I'm not certain if I'll go to any camps," Nelson said. "Honestly I'm not a huge camp guy. I'll probably just work out at my high school over the summer."

Even though he may not end up attending any camps, Nelson still knows what he needs to work on this coming summer.

"I would say my strengths are aggression but at the same time, some of my weaknesses are I can be too aggressive at times," said Nelson. "So I'm trying to find the right balance. I also can over run plays as well so those are two areas that I'm trying to improve on over the summer."
