6-3 | 240 | Jr. | College: Nebraska.
Stats and stuff: Nelson at Friday Night Lights in June caught the eye of the Nebraska coaches, who offered the junior a scholarship that weekend and he committed almost immediately. Nelson, who will play linebacker or tight end with the Huskers, racked up 145 defensive points this fall for the Bearcats, quarterfinalists in the Class B playoffs. He had nine sacks, 10 more tackles for loss and a fumble recovery. Offensively, he caught four passes for 35 yards and rushed for 132 yards on just 13 attempts.
