Stone Mountain linebacker Robert Nelson hopes to attend the South Carolina game against LSU on Saturday. “My top choice right now is South Carolina,” he said. “When I went to the ‘Gamecocks Showcase’ [prospect camp last summer], I fell in love with the coaching staff and the atmosphere.” Will Nelson commit to the Gamecocks this weekend? “I am holding off committing [to any school] just so I can weigh all my options and see who else offers.’ The 6-foot, 209-pound Nelson has nearly 30 offers on the table, including Tennessee, Auburn, South Carolina and West Virginia. “If I can’t make it to the South Carolina-LSU game, I will go to the next home game,” he said. “I kind of have an open invitation.” Nelson said Auburn is currently second on his list
