Nelson commits to UCF

UCF landed their fifth commitment on Tuesday from Neal Nelson, an outside linebacker prospect from Timber Creek High School in Sicklerville, N.J.

Nelson, who had been in Orlando over the weekend, had culled his list to two schools - UCF and Pittsburgh - prior to his announcement. His offer list had also included Boston College, Louisville, Old Dominion, Syracuse and Temple.


"I absolutely loved it there," Nelson said about UCF following his visit. "UCF is a beautiful campus and they have great facilities. The coaches kept it real with me, especially Coach (George) O'Leary. For the most part, it was everything I expected and more."

His UCF recruiter is tight ends coach Allen Mogridge.

"Coach Mo said they loved the way I attack the ball," Nelson said in an earlier interview. "The way I come downhill and the way I approach it. That's a big upside he said he liked about my game."

Nelson made the announcement at Timber Creek's stadium, just prior to their afternoon practice. UCFSports.com plans to connect with him later in the evening to talk about his decision.

The Knights now have five commitments in the Class of 2015 as Nelson joins wide receiver Cameron Stewart, quarterback Bo Schneider, running back Taj McGowan and linebacker Pat Jasinski.
