Scouting Report

Projection

Power-5 Starter

Nichelson is among the most athletic linebackers in the region. He has a lot of quick-twitch in his game and shows both short area quickness and excellent closing speed. He has prototype size for a weak side ‘backer and shows plenty of room to fill out his 6-3 frame. He’s a physical kid and was one of the areas top running backs last season as well, but we think his upside is highest on the defensive side of the ball.

Athletic Background

Two-way player with extensive snaps at running back and multiple defensive roles.
