Area high school football fans and Nebraska football fans have known this day was coming for quite some time.
On Wednesday the time arrived, National Letter of Intent Signing Day, and Nelson finalized his decision, signing to attend school and play football at the University of Nebraska.
Garrett officially signed this morning but the big signing party at Scottsbluff High School was late Wednesday afternoon and KNEB Sports was on hand for the proceedings.
This past season Nelson helped lead Scottsbluff to the Class B State Championship game in Lincoln. He played his final high school game on Tom Osborne Field at Memorial Stadium, his soon to be college home field.
Soon, as in, almost immediately. Nelson is graduating high school here at Scottsbluff with the close of the fall semester and he’s enrolled for spring classes in Lincoln and he will participate in spring football workouts.
