Charlie Strong picked up his third commitment of the week on Wednesday night as Chris Nelson a 6-foot-2, 295-pound, defensive tackle from Lakeland, FL., verbally pledged to the Cards.
Nelson is rated as a three star prospect and is the 25th commitment for Charlie Strong’s 2014 class.
The Florida native chose Louisville over Iowa, Kentucky, Nebraska and North Carolina State.
He also had scholarship offers from Missouri, Pittsburgh, Purdue, South Florida, Central Florida, Virginia and Wake Forest.
As a junior in 2012 at Victory Christian Academy, Nelson recorded 79 tackles (41 solo) and forced two fumbles.
