Bio
Will Nelson is an elite level athlete who can contribute and help any team win games in many ways. Standing 6’7”, Nelson brings a lot of versatility to any team with his ability to play effectively inside, on the perimeter, or on the wings. His size and quickness allows him to excel at the guard and forward positions. Nelson is also a great defender with shot blocking ability. Nelson can easily transition from handling the ball on the outside, to playing strong in the post. He is blessed with tremendous athleticism and is an exciting player who plays above the rim, however he is also a very good shooter from the perimeter. Nelson also has the quickness to beat his defender off the dribble and finish at the rim or knock down the mid-range jumper in traffic. His strength and quickness provides him with mismatches offensively, and also allows him to defend multiple positions, making Nelson a very valuable weapon to have on your roster. A 2014 NAIA All-American, Nelson is a strong, hungry, dynamic player who was the leading candidate for Rookie of the Year honors in the Dominos League (1stDivision Iceland) before his season was cut short due to an abrupt ownership decision to go against the coach's wishes, to make roster changes that left Nelson on the outside looking in, despite his play and contributions to the team. Nelson is looking for a team with stability at the management level, that is willing to make a commitment to him as a player and representative of the team.
