The Skinny

The longest-tenured member of the Huskers’ 2019 class, Nelson committed to Mike Riley’s program well before the 2017 season began. He played defensive end at Scottsbluff, but is an outside linebacker in Erik Chinander’s 3-4 scheme. He plays with abandon and is one of the binding forces of this class. Nelson is an early enrollee.
