Anthony Nelson, the 6-foot-4, 175-pound Class of 2018 point guard from the NY Lightning and South Kent (CT), took his first official visit to Dayton this weekend.
“It was good,” he said. “Their message to me was that they want me to come in and be a playmaker, make everyone around me better.”
Nelson visits Seton Hall next weekend, followed by Clemson. He also lists Minnesota and West Virginia among his top five.
“He has a great feel for the game and a high skill set,” Lightning coach Dana Dingle said. “He makes the game easier for his teammates. He has great size for a point guard and can score the ball.”
