Georgia secondary coach Scott Lakatos knows he will need experienced help in 2013. Graduation will take both of his starting cornerbacks and safeties. Luckily, for Lakatos, help was only a phone call away. Defensive back Steven Nelson (Warner Robins, Ga./College of the Sequoias) committed to Georgia this evening.

“Yes, sir, I committed as a cornerback and a punt return specialist,” Nelson told DawgNation. “Actually, I called Coach Lakatos earlier between some of my classes and we talked for a good 30, 45 minutes. He told me they liked my style of play, my size and speed, and he just laid it out and said they were going to offer me. I told him I would call him back. I called my defensive backs coach out here and he said I needed to commit, so that’s what I did.”
