Windy City Speedster
Another Chicago-area recruit is on the way.
6-2 190 lbs. WR/DB Connor Nelligan is coming to Columbia.
Nelligan also can fill in at QB and kicker, as he did in an early season win this past September when he scored three TD's, threw for another, and kicked extra points.
He's also put in time at tight end, linebacker, punter, and holder.
His highlight video is here.
Nelligan breaks away for a 77-yard TD
Nelligan's 40 yard dash speed is listed at 4.54.
Nelligan will rejoin his former Benet teammate, DL Nick Melka '14, and they are the only two documented Benet players to join the Lions.
Our unofficial list of probable incoming frosh and newcomers now stands at 21.
