ACC, Big Ten visit '14 OT Quenton Nelson
By Jared Shanker
One of the top prospects in the New Jersey in the Class of 2014, Quenton Nelson (Red Bank, N.J./Red Bank Catholic) has 15 offers already. Two of those programs stopped in to check up on Nelson on Monday.
North Carolina assistant David Duggan was at Red Bank Catholic on Monday, as was Northwestern assistant Bob Heffner. Both are recruiting the 6-foot-5, 285-pound Nelson for their respective schools.
Nelson is expecting another Big Ten program to come through the school Tuesday. Ohio State assistant Ed Warriner, the Buckeyes' offensive line coach, will be at Red Bank Catholic on Tuesday. He is also Nelson's lead recruiter.
Ohio State has offered Nelson.
Red Bank Catholic will play top-ranked St. Joseph (Montvale) in the semifinals on Saturday.
