UPDATE: Dundrecous Nelson commits to Ole Miss

JACKSON — Murrah High School basketball standout Dundrecous Nelson says he will sign with Ole Miss.

Nelson, a 5-foot-10 junior guard, was a preseason Dandy Dozen selection last October.

He averaged 17.2 points, 3.4 assists and 3 steals before sustaining season-ending injuries in a car accident in January.

Nelson also had offers from Mississippi State, Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas State, UAB and USC.

Nelson, who said he made 21 on the ACT last year, is expected to meet NCAA freshman eligibility requirements.

Commitments are nonbinding. The first day Nelson can sign a binding letter of intent is Nov. 11.
