Lincoln’s Jordan Nelson, arguably the best shooter in the senior class, has committed to Evansville.

Nelson, who recently took an official visit to Evansville, heads to the Missouri Valley Conference school as one of the premier three-point shooters in state history. The 6-1 guard had a terrific senior year, which included a 48-point performance against Springfield Lanphier and being named the Central State 8 Player of the Year. He finished the season averaging 22 points a game and knocked down 112 three-pointers on the season and a whopping 347 in his career.
