OSU insider in-depth: Montra Nelson
by Brandon Chatmon
With recruiting season in full swing, I will be evaluating all 26 prospects who are currently committed to the Oklahoma State football program. I will go in alphabetical order and will post three or four evaluations per day during the next week.
My evaluations will conclude next Friday when I rank OSU’s commitments including their chances of having an immediate impact in Stillwater.
Montra Nelson, Arlington (Texas) Bowie
Ht, Wt: 6-3, 221
Vitals: 4.5 in the 40
Picked OSU over… Kansas, Nebraska, TCU
Pros: Nelson is a big, physical receiver who uses his body well and could develop into a key third down and red zone receiving threat. Has very good body control and is a good runner after the catch. Has the size to create instant mismatches against cornerbacks and safeties.
Cons: Not exceptionally fast or quick.
Expect an impact in… 2011. Nelson has the size to play right away but the Cowboys depth and youth at receiver should allow him to redshirt during his first year on campus.
Here’s a short clip of Nelson in action (#9 in orange):
