It’s been a hot couple weeks for Coach Stackhouse on the recruiting side of things for his 2020 class, meanwhile we flip over to the 2021 class for a closer look.
Vandy target Jason Nelson just recently announced his top 2 this weekend on Twitter. Nelson also stated that, “he will make his decision before the summer is out.” This should give some major hope for the Vanderbilt faithful.
The 2021 prospect has Vandy and Richmond as his two finalists for his future destination. The Virginia native attends John Marshall High School in Los Angeles. He averaged 17 points and 6 assists as a Junior leading his team to a State Championship.
Nelson took an official visit to Vanderbilt last fall and picked up an offer in the meantime from Coach Stackhouse. The 5’10 prospect is not rated on the 247 or Rivals websites as of now. He had an offer sheet consisting of the Commodores along with Richmond, Canisius, Drake, and Drexel.
Yep, he’s been in the lab.
Jason Nelson isn’t your typical prospect but, he has all kinds of tools to bring to the table. If Coach Stackhouse and the Commodores can land the talented recruit, Nelson will most likely backup Sophomore Scotty Pippen Jr.
Young Guards Isaac McBride and Tyrin Lawrence will also be in the mix whether it’s at point guard or shooting guard. Nelson would be the first addition to the 2021 class for Coach Stackhouse and would hopefully lead to more highly touted players. Meanwhile, Commodore Fans sit and wait for Nelson to make his College decision over the next month.
