Things were moving along at a slow pace for three-star Dallas (Texas) Kimball cornerback Cameron Nelson with visits set up and a wide open recruiting race going on. However, that changed late in the month of August when the Lone Star prospect made an early pledge to Arizona.
Now, many wonder if Nelson would be tempted to take any more visits that he was scheduled to take and look around a bit. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound prospect has seen all he needs to see and apparently doesn't need any more trips.
"Yes sir, I'm as solid as ever," Nelson said about his Arizona pledge. "Michigan State, Kansas, Nebraska, and Georgia Tech all call. Most of the time though, I don't even pick up the phone. I just leave it alone."
The one thing that made Nelson's decision easy and has kept it strong was the academic situation that Arizona offered him.
"I just feel like it's for me because the marketing program is great there," Nelson said. "Plus, coach Mark Stoops kind of sold me. He was down at Miami and coached some big time players like Antrel Rolle there, so when he offered, I knew he saw something big in me."
"I also felt like I could come in and really help."
One thing that Nelson is also glad about is to be done with recruiting, unlike some of his teammates.
"It's a huge relief," Nelson said. "I've got some friends on the team that are still confused about it. I'm glad I made my decision early and I can focus on our game plan and not worry about stuff outside of the team."
