Daytona Beach (Fla.) Seabreeze athlete Charles Nelson has seen his recruiting stock rise over the last few weeks. New offers from Florida, Notre Dame, and USC have come across the desk of Nelson, a his latest offer came during the Thanksgiving break from West Virginia.
According to Nelson, Mountaineers assistant coach Joe DeForest extended the offer to the three-star flanker.
"Right now my top five is USC, Notre Dame, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Florida," Nelson said. "It feels great to get the new offers. I had my knee injury and a few teams started to back off, saying they weren't going to do anything until they saw me back at 100%."
Nelson said distance won't be a factor in his decision. He is looking for the school with the best fit and a good coaching staff.
Most schools are recruiting him at receiver, but some programs have offered him at defensive back. Nelson doesn't have a preference on where he will play.
"To me it doesn't matter," Nelson said. "Wherever the coach wants me to play or where he feels they need help at is where I will play. A few schools want me to help in the kick and punt return game too."
The 5-foot-9, 170-pounder has a similar build and body type to former West Virginia standout and St. Louis Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin.
During his senior season he racked up over 1,000 all-purpose yards and scored nine touchdowns to go with 40 tackles and four interceptions on defense.
