2017 Mississippi Gulf Coast WR Jonathan Nance is a player starting to garner more attention on the recruiting front

Things have begun to hit full stride on the recruiting front for 2017 Mississippi Gulf Coast WR Jonathan Nance (6-0, 181) and he recently updated JCFootball.com on where things stand and how his offseason is progressing...

"So far, my offers are from Troy and Arkansas," Nance told JCFootball.com. "Arkansas just came in last Friday. They said they are losing five wideouts after the season and they felt I would be a good fit for their offense."

In addition to the two schools that have offered, the talented wideout has also been talking with Southern Miss, Middle Tennessee, Memphis, Iowa State and Arizona State.

As a freshman last season, Nance finished with 31 receptions for 400 yards and three touchdowns while earning a starting spot.

"I'm explosive and I have sure hands," Nance said. "I work hard at making sure my routes are good and that I set up the defensive back to get separation.

"This offseason, I've really been really working on getting my routes even better and just perfecting my craft. I also want to get stronger and work on my speed tool."

During a very good prep career at Gulfport (Ms.) High School and he signed with Southern Miss, but soon after enrolling, he figured out it wasn't the right place for him.

"They had me at corner and I didn't feel like it was the right spot for me, so I came up to the Gulf Coast to play wide receiver," Nance noted. "I liked the staff here and the program is known for getting a lot of guys to the next level, so I figured I'd come and play and see what happens."

Nance is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2016 football season.
