Nationally Ranked #2 JUCO WR Nero Nelson Commits to FAU's Class of 2018



The Owls earned their third commit from the weekend of December 8th after nationally ranked JUCO WR Nero Nelson announced his pledge via twitter.

Nelson comes from Copiah-Lincoln CC and also held reported offer during his recruitment from Memphis, Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Louisville, and Mississippi State.

Nelson hauled in 22 catches for 326 yards and 3 TD for the Wolves last season amongst a talented group of receivers.

Nero is a 4 star recruit on ESPN's recruiting service

Pretty sure he would be the first player in FAU history to sign as a 4 star

Weren't some of our other transfers/JuCo signees this past class also 4* guys?

Yes, I believe the JUCO guys McNeal, Johnson, and McGriff were 4 star guys out of HS. Might have been another one. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong there.

Gonna chalk that up as a 4-star victory for us though even if it's not right out of high school because we weren't getting the 4-star JUCO guys before Lane.

We always talked about what it would take to make that recruiting leap from 3 to 4, mostly so we could have the talent level to compete all 4 quarters with P5 teams, and the answer is…. we had to hire Lane Kiffin.

Here's a nice vid he did a while back, but it makes a case for the obvious - he's a game changer with his agility.
