Nelson, who committed to Iowa State in June, is the son of Jeff Nelson, an Iowa defensive lineman from 1988-92.

Clearly, this is a blow to Iowa State’s recruiting class for two main reasons – the first being that defensive line is always a position of need in Ames. Nelson’s 6-foot-6, 210-pound frame was intriguing.
If you do lose a commitment on Jan. 5, you don’t want to lose it to your in-state rival either.
