Gators hit Alabama for another commitment in Tony Nelson

The Florida Gators added commitment #22 on Monday with the addition of 6-foot-3, 185 pound Montgomery (Ala.) Carver defensive back Tony Nelson.

Tony Nelson makes the fourth commitment from the state of Alabama in the 2016 class joining running back Lamical Perine, linebacker Jeremiah Moon, and safety Jeawon Taylor.

Nelson is versatile and will get a shot at cornerback and safety when he arrives on campus. He is rangy with speed and plays with a tenacity you just don't see anywhere. 

Nelson was the last offer the Gators have dished out and this one was expected to end pretty soon, but with all of the overhaul the secondary will go through. 

Stay tuned as we bring you more from the Gators newest commitment.
