New Duck Charles Nelson shines in USA-Canada All-Star tilt

Oregon Signing Day steal Charles Nelson earned MVP honors at the Canada vs. USA International Bowl in Arlington, Texas Friday night.

The newest speedy Duck zoomed 90 yards with a second quarter punt return for a td, adding five catches for 56 yards in a 43-7 victory by the U.S. 19-and-under All-Stars versus a squad from the Great White North.

Jalen Jelks, a future defensive lineman for the Webfoots, also played, ejected in the first half after “celebrating” a sack, excited after making a good play. The call was an overreaction.

Nobody’s gonna catch that man: Charles Nelson runs through drills at a combine last summer (CHRIS HAYS/ORLANDO SENTINEL). One of the new Oregon Ducks, Nelson was named MVP of the USA-Canada International Bowl Friday night in Arlington, Texas after jetting 90 yards for a td with a second quarter punt.

Nelson displayed good hands and speed in the game, showing himself to be the fastest player on the field on a day where speed made the difference for the Americans. He and Jelks will join the Oregon roster this June. The experience in international competion can only help the young Ducks, who plan to be roommates in Eugene.
