Detroit Jesuit senior safety Scott Nelson walks away impressed from his unofficial visit to Wisconsin

Shortly after putting Wisconsin in his top five, Detroit Jesuit senior safety Scott Nelson takes an unofficial visit to Madison that leaves him impressed.

After naming Wisconsin in his top five schools this last week, Detroit Jesuit three-star senior safety Scott Nelson decided to visit Wisconsin right away, spending two nights in Madison.

Stating how much fun he had on this visit, Nelson said his biggest takeaway was getting to know the coaches and the players better, an experience that made him put the Badgers higher up on his list.

"I connected well with the coaches,” Nelson told BadgerNation. “They reached to me about how they can develop me as player and as person, and that intrigues me. What sticks out to me the most is how they send players to the next level. That’s my goal and has been my goal forever, so I want to go to the school that gives me the best chance to make it."

Another thing that stuck out for Nelson was the atmosphere, saying everybody around the campus loves football and the fans' love for the game is second to none. Those vibes got Nelson more excited to be on campus to see a home football game.

"The fans are electric,” Nelson said. “They're all supporting Wisconsin gear, all active and all are hard-workers. We go into a breakfast place and all college kids are typing away for papers. It's the little stuff that impresses you, and Wisconsin fans have in the past and definitely did impress on my visit. I can’t wait to catch a game this fall and see jump around live in person."

Listing Iowa, Michigan State, Northwestern and Penn State as the other schools in his top five, Nelson said the remainder of his summer, which has been filled with a number of offseason camps, will include a handful of more unofficial visits, workouts in the weight room and focusing on improving his footwork.

"I'll be focusing on a couple more visits this summer, then it will be strictly improving my game and focusing on this upcoming year,” Nelson said. “We have some tough opponents this year so I'm going to have to be my best this off-season in order to prepare. I should be visiting Michigan State, Iowa and hopefully Northwestern. I need to work on my footwork and strength, so that will be the main focus of my offseason workouts"
