Run with the Pack, Big Fella

Monty Nelson, a consensus three-star recruit, joined Kenton Gibbs as defensive tackles pledged to the Pack from the class of 2013 when he verbaled during his visit this weekend. Nelson, a 6-2, 310-pound space eater, chose the Pack from an impressive offer list that included Michigan State, Wisconsin, and many other BCS programs.

Rivals thinks most highly of Nelson, ranking him as the 43rd best defensive tackle prospect in the class of 2013. ESPN has Nelson 48th, while Scout and 247sports peg him at 55th and 64th, respectively. Nelson showed nimbleness in his junior campaign, recording 10 sacks. He joins recent recommit Matt Dayes as future Wolfpackers from the Broward, Florida area.

Nelson’s commitment boosted the Pack’s class into the top 50 nationally and to the middle of the pack in the ACC which, all things considered, is pretty impressive. The new staff has done an excellent job keeping most of the inherited class intact while filling positions of need with quality prospects. Assuming no defections from current commits or current players, Dave Doeren and crew have two more scholarships available for the current class.
