Last week, we told you about Garrett Nelson, the Scottsbluff linebacker that came to Friday Night Lights, left with a scholarship offer from Bob Diaco and Mike Riley, and was in tears over the offer in joy.
Today, he makes his place in the 2019 recruiting class official.

Nelson is not ranked by 247Sports yet, either with a state/position ranking, nor a star ranking. But, the fact that Mike Riley and staff thought enough of him to give him a commitable offer is the start of something big for the kid.
Nelson is the first verbal of the 2019 cycle, but don’t expect him to be lonely for long. Quarterback Max Duggan was back at this week’s FNL camp as well, and I do think it’s only a matter of time before the Council Bluffs signalcaller is N as well.
