National Signing Day: Florida DT Chris Nelson Signs with Texas Longhorns

NSD_FeaturedImage_OrangeThe first big surprise of National Signing Day has come for the Longhorns.

Florida DT Chris Nelson decided to leave his home state for Texas.

Nelson measures in at 6-2 and 295 pounds, suggesting it may not be too long before he can contribute on Texas’ defensive line. He is a consensus three-star recruit according to the various scouting services, and had expressed interest in joining Charlie Strong when he was still at Louisville. Nelson also drew interest from South Florida and Central Florida.

Jason Hirschhorn serves as Editor-in-Chief for FanSided’s Texas Longhorns blog, Hook ‘em Headlines. He also covers the Green Bay Packers for SB Nation’s Acme Packing Company. His work has previously appeared on Beats Per Minute, Lombardi Ave, and College Hoops Net.
