DaKaari Nelson is a safety recruit in the Class of 2023 with tremendous upside potential, according to recruiting analysts that have been scouting him these past few years.
Penn State has built a solid defensive secondary for years to come with recent recruiting efforts. Nelson would fit in perfectly with that overall vision for sustained success in the secondary as the safety position in particular is due for some notable changes in the next couple of years following the pending departures of Ji'Ayir Brown and Keaton Ellis.
Here is a quick profile rundown of Nelson, a prized recruit in the Class of 2023.
