Rivals100 safety taking it easy

Palm Bay (Fla.) four-star safety Reggie Nelson is taking it easy when it comes to recruiting.
Nelson, one of the top players in the Sunshine State, is being recruited by almost every program in the country and he certainly has the offers to show for it. Reggie is concentrating on his season for now and hasn't set up any official visits or narrowed down his list of schools. He also said he didn't have any favorite schools either.
"No, I don't really have any favorites," Nelson said. "I'm looking at all of them."
Nelson and teammate Joe Cohen, a five-star athlete by Rivals.com, would like to attend the same school if possible. Reggie said they are hoping to attend LSU's home game later this month against South Carolina.
"We're trying to go to the LSU game on October 19th," Nelson said. "We just want to watch football games right now. We haven't narrowed anything down yet."
Nelson and Cohen have only been to one other game so far during this college football season.
"We went to the Florida and Miami game," Nelson said. "That was my first college football game. It was a good game, I liked it."
Reggie Nelson (6-0, 175) contributes all over the field for Palm Bay but he sees himself more than likely on defense at the next level.
"Most of the schools want me to play safety," Nelson said. "Some of them want me to play receiver. It don't matter what position as long as I play."
Nelson would have no problem leaving the State of Florida to play his college ball.
"I'll leave the state if it got down to it. Either that or I'll stay in Florida. It's no problem if I leave the state. I'd be far away from home but I'd just have to deal with it."
