Rivals150 prospect Dundrecous Nelson, who is on his way back to 100 percent from injuries suffered in an automobile injury, has found his future home in the SEC.
Nelson, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound athletic combo guard from Jackson (Miss.) Murrah High School will stay in-state and play for Ole Miss.
"Dundrecous wanted to play in the SEC, which we consider the Mecca of conferences right now," said Nelson's travel team coach Lemond Roy of the Jackson Panthers. "They have been recruiting him for two years, and he really enjoyed his visit there."
Nelson, who was also recruited by Alabama, Mississippi State, Arkansas and UAB, hopes to take over where Chris Warren leaves off.
"Chris Warren will be a senior when Dundreceous gets there, and it's such a big transition, it will be a great situation for Dundrecous to play the back up role," said Roy. "He will learn a lot from Chris and also get some minutes as a freshman. Then the plan is for Chris to pass the torch off to Dundreceous."
After averaging 17 points per game as a junior, Nelson found his stride this past weekend when he scored 30 points in an AAU state final loss to the Jackson Tigers.
