Kansas DB hearing from Big 12 schools

Riley (Kan.) Riley County safety Jordy Nelson is one of the top players in the state of Kansas this year.
"I am hearing from K-State, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Colorado State and Emporia State (D-II school in Kansas)," the 6-foot-3, 200-pound Nelson said. "Emporia State offered me a scholarship a while back. They are the only one so far."
Nelson made time during the summer for football camps at both K-State and Nebraska.
"I had a good time at both places," Nelson said. "I was clocked at 4.50 in the 40-yard dash at both camps."
Nelson, who earned all-league honors last year as a safety, is still waiting for his first Division-I scholarship offer. Despite the lack of offers, Nelson isn't favoring one school over the others completely.
"I would say that if all things were equal between all of the schools, that I would have to go to K-State. But we'll see how it all shakes out over time."
Nelson was in attendance at the Nebraska spring game earlier this year. He has also taken unofficial trips to K-State for the Wildcats' spring game and their Sept. 21 home game against USC.
