High School junior said Saturday he had whittled his choices to Alabama, Florida State, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Southern California.Despite his proximity to USC — Los Alamitos is about 25 miles south — Nelson is expected to choose Oklahoma, according to recruiting analysts.The 247Sports composite lists Arch Manning, the nephew of Super Bowl-winning QBs Peyton and Eli Manning, as the nation’s top quarterback and No. 1 overall player. His fellow five-star prospect Nelson is ranked No. 5 overall.He’s not being eligible to sign a national letter of intent for about 18 months, but the 6-foot-3, 180-pound Nelson said he has seen and heard enough to make his college selection.
