RJ Nelson is one of the most physical kids we have seen in a long time. He is fast, big, lean, and explosive and that all spells “college football” usually. Today RJ got what he was looking for in the form of a full ride offer. The Hillsboro High Spartan (Hillsboro, Oregon) got an offer today from Eastern Washington University and took to Twitter to spread the word!

The 6’4″- 220 lb. monster is one of the best pass rushers in the Pacific NW and made his 10 play highlight to showcase his ability after NWPR put out the call to action for that last fall. What you will see below is a instructional video on how to set the defensive edge and wreak terror on opposing QB’s and running backs. There is nothing about this not to like!
“I am feeling great this is a huge accomplishment for me! I’m kind of blown away about it all, and this is an amazing feeling, I’m at a loss of words trying to describe it! I highly appreciate you reaching out for me as well,” said Nelson who is was named among the Top 60 football players in the Pacific Northwest by NWPR.
Was this the first offer for RJ? And we wondered how he felt to get an offer from a great Coach and person like Coach Beau Baldwin?
“Yes it’s my first (offer), and my dad and I definitely got the same (positive) impression about coach Baldwin. There was a very welcoming feeling up there with all the coaches and players I got to interact with. I’m up to 215 now and should play this season at 225 lbs this year, I look quite a bit different than I did at the end of my basketball season when you last saw me at NW Stars camp,” he added.
Another great Oregon 2017 prospect has landed his first offer which adds to an already terrific recruiting class. We congratulate RJ on his big day and look forward to seeing more from him in the near future.
