Picasso Nelson Jr. chooses USM

Posted by JAMES JONES on July 23, 2013 

Oak Grove wide receiver Picasso Nelson Jr. has verbally committed to play at Southern Miss.

Nelson made his decision late Monday night and had scholarship offers from Louisiana-Monroe and UAB.

"My family can come to every game," he told BigGoldNation.com. "They won't have to be on the road late at night. I can still go to my Chruch and still get home made biscuits!"

His father, Picasso Sr., was the SWAC's defensive MVP at Jackson State in 1995.
