When he tore his ACL in October of his junior year, Charles Nelson knew it was going to be tough, but the 2014 Florida wide receiver also knew what he wanted.
“It was a long process,” he said. “I had to rehab. I knew if I wanted to go somewhere and play at a big-time college, I had to work my butt off to get these scholarship offers and that’s what I did. Every day I worked hard. I grinded every day to put myself where I was last year or make myself better, which I feel like I have.
“To see the schools, after a long process, actually hopping on and offering me, it makes me feel like I accomplished a lot, which makes me feel good and makes me feel like I actually did something worth my time.”
