National Signing Day 2017: 3-star RB Craig Nelson signs with Indiana

It’s yet another Florida signee for Indiana, this time a Deland McCullough find out of Miami’s Booker T. Washington High School.

Deland McCullough’s eye for running back talent should be well-known in Bloomington and throughout Indiana — heck, all of college football by now. He’s hoping he’s found another gem in Miami area running back Craig Nelson.

Nelson only held one offer — from Idaho — per just a few weeks ago on his 247Sports page. But the smaller, quick back brings Florida-like speed to Indiana’s backfield. He quickly accepted McCullough and Indiana’s offer a handful of days after the Hoosiers’ coaching staff extended, calling it an opportunity he had to jump on.


Nelson is a 3-star in the 247Composite, rating at a 79 — but is unranked by the service themselves.


Nelson was Indiana’s only running back commitment heading into National Signing Day for the class, giving much needed depth at the position.
