GW offers Central Catholic's Nelson

A source told ESPNBoston.com last night that George Washington University has extended a scholarship offer to Central Catholic Class of 2014 guard Tyler Nelson.

The Colonials are the third Division 1 school to offer the 6-foot-2 Haverhill resident, joining Jacksonville and Dartmouth. He is a two-time ESPN Boston All-State selection, and is also among the most accurate shooters in Nike's Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) this spring. Playing with the Boston Amateur Basketball Club (BABC), Nelson ranks second on the team in scoring (12.4 ppg) and is shooting 51.9 percent from three-point range.
