A two-way workhorse at Gulf Coast State JC, Nelson led the Commodores in both innings pitched and at-bats. Professional scouts are most interested in him as a pitcher, though he would remain a two-way player if he continues on to Florida, where he is committed. Nelson isn't particularly tall (he's listed at 6-foot-1), but has a strong, physical frame. Along with that comes some solid arm strength, and he sits in the low 90s with his fastball. He pairs that with a breaking ball that shows some promise. Nelson profiles best as a reliever. As a hitter, he provides some righthanded power that should play well in college.
