Nelson Adds Vols Offer

Quenton Nelson

Red Bank (N.J.) Catholic High offensive tackle Quenton Nelson added Tennessee to his impressive offer list Thursday, and he provided FOXSportsNEXT with some thoughts about it.

Red Bank (N.J.) High offensive tackle Quenton Nelson is putting together a spring visit schedule, and it looks like he will be adding another school to the list.

Nelson, who is 6-foot-5, 280 pounds, received an offer from Tennessee on Tuesday as his total climbs toward 30.

"I called coach (Don) Mahoney, the offensive line coach, and he offered me," Nelson said. "He told me they were going to be losing four linemen next year because they're seniors, and they might even lose their left tackle, who's a junior, because he might go to the pros."

Nelson doesn't know much about the Vols, but he is excited to see the campus. He plans on visiting Vanderbilt in the late spring or early summer, and is working in a trip to Knoxville, Tenn., as well.

"(Mahoney) said he really likes me and he would love for me to come visit," Nelson said. "I've seen a picture of the campus and the weight room, and it's beautiful. I think when I go out to see Vanderbilt, I'll probably swing by and see Tennessee."

Nelson also plans on visiting Boston College, Ohio State, Northwestern, Notre Dame (no offer), Rutgers and Penn State in March and April.
