New DB commit...probably a Dawg

A few reports say Georgia is close to getting ($$) an official commitment from Steven Nelson of College of the Sequoias. I say official because it appears there are still some transcripts to pore over. But Nelson himself says he's committed. So it sounds like a deal where as long as the courses work out, both sides want to do business.

The specifics:

  • Nelson is a product of Northside HS in Warner Robins GA
  • He's a 3 for 2 guy, three years to play two
  • But....he is mulling the decision to possibly redshirt in '12 so he'd have three seasons in Athens
  • He's 6'1" and 190 and a speedster with a 4.4/40
  • Looks like a Jan 2013 enrollee, so he'd be here for spring ball
  • From his film he looks like an athletic, physical corner that has experience playing close to the line of scrimmage (pretty decent INT and return at the 2:50)
Mario Alford is going to be in Athens this weekend. He's also waiting on an official offer so he can eagerly accept.
