UNT enthusiasm entices Keller tackle


Recommended Posts

Cody Nelson felt like he was at the top of North Texas’ wish list when it came to offensive line prospects this summer.

That made a big impression on the Keller tackle, who orally committed to UNT late Monday.

Nelson had just one offer, from UNT, but said he was told by coaches at Texas Tech and Louisiana Tech that he could receive offers from them if he attended their summer camps.

Nelson decided to go with the team that wanted him most.

“The coaches at North Texas followed me the whole time and showed that they really wanted me,” Nelson said. “I wasn’t a backup plan in case someone else didn’t commit. I felt like I was a Plan B guy with some of the other schools.”

Nelson (6-5, 270 pounds) played both right and left tackle for Keller.

UNT safeties coach Noah Joseph recruited Nelson, who is projected to remain at tackle.

Oral commitments are nonbinding. The first day recruits in the class of 2013 can sign national letters of intent is Feb. 6.

Kevin Atkinson, the new head coach at Denton, coached Nelson at Keller before taking over the Broncos’ program early this year. He has known Nelson since he was playing in the Keller youth leagues and says he believes he will develop into a solid college lineman.
