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.
