Tyler Nelson of Central Catholic commits to Fairfield
Tuesday, 27 August 2013
ImageBoston Herald: Central Catholic senior guard Tyler Nelson has just confirmed via his twitter feed that he will attend Fairfield on a basketball scholarship. He took a trip there a few months ago and fell in love with everything about the school.

"I really liked the campus," Nelson said. "I met the coaches and really liked them. I think I can go there and have a chance to play as a freshman. I also liked the academics, I'm looking at business and a few other things (to major in)."

A 6-foot-2 sharpshooter, Nelson averaged 16.2 points per game and was named to the Merrimack Valley All-Conference Team as the Raiders won the MVC Large and Division 1 North sectional title. He enters his final season with 926 points. An honor roll student, Nelson also earned All-Scholastic honors in golf this fall, winning the MVC championship and finishing fifth in the sectional final. Making the decision will allow him to focus solely on Central Catholic in his final campaign.

"That was a goal of mine, to make a decision before the start of my senior year," Nelson said. "Now that this is done, I can concentrate on my golf and basketball."
