After fending off some Power 5 interest, Nealy will officially be staying home in the sunshine state and joining a secondary that is in need of a true #1 lock down corner. In a shortened season for Gulliver Prep, Nealy kept opposing wide receivers at bay, helping lead his team to a 5-1 record before losing in the second round of the state playoffs.
Highlighting his season was a pick six against Monsignor Place, as Gulliver routed their opponent 43-13. Throughout his highlights, Nealy plays physical at the line of scrimmage, and has great coverage skills to turn any man-to-man match up into his advantage. His physical traits also help him provide support in the run game, leading to some great open field tackles. At 6’4 and 175 pounds, he has natural length that will be useful for press coverage, but will need to bulk up for tougher competition.
