The 6-foot-2, 310-pound defensive tackle, who hasn't visited any schools during the summer, is hoping to hit the road during the college football season in order to check out a few of his favorites.
"In September, me and my mom are talking over visiting Michigan State, Wisconsin, and Missouri," Nelson said.
Nelson has previously mentioned an interest in taking all five of his official visits before making a decision.
His decision will be based upon his relationship with the coaching staff, the depth chart at his position, as well as the academic offerings of the school. He hasn't set a specific timeline for making a decision.
As a junior, Nelson had 45 tackles, 10 tacks, and forced eight fumbles.
