#66 OL Matt Nelson - Sophomore, 6’2”, 278 lbs.
2017: Saw no action
2016 : Nelson was brand new to the team and did not participate in any games. It ended up being a redshirt year.
How He Came To USF: Matt went to Trinity Catholic High School in Ocala, where he was a center on the football team and (oddly enough) also played lacrosse. The Celtics reached the Class 3A state playoffs in 2015, even though they had a 3-7 record. (They won all three district games while playing some of the state’s Catholic football heavyweights, like Jesuit and CCC, out of district.) Matt joined USF as a walk-on last fall.
High School Highlights: Absolutely.
Recruiting Rankings: Matt was not ranked by the major recruiting sites.
Follow Him On... Matt’s on Twitter at @mnelson66. We think he has an Instagram page, too, but there’s nothing on it, and we don’t want to advertise if it might not be his.
