"I played pretty well and didn't really surprise myself because I knew the work I was putting in," Nelson said. "I saw the results that I wanted."
Nelson, 6-foot-2 and 310-pounds, is now in a sit and wait mode when it comes to recruiting. He's waiting on one specific school.
"I am hearing from schools all over," Nelson said. "But it's been hard with coaches changing and going from school to school. Wisconsin, Louisville, Indiana, Missouri and Ole Miss are all recruiting me. It's a lot of schools and I want to see what happens with Wisconsin. I have not set up any visits yet but I am working on it."
