RALEIGH, NC -- The future of Hurricanes freshman linebacker Kevin Nelson, who left the football team while they were practicing for the Sun Bowl, remains unresolved.
This week, Nelson met with UM coach Al Golden to talk about returning to the team. But according to a source at UM, the 6-foot, 210-pound linebacker from Gainesville was told by Golden he would have to wait until after National Signing Day to receive a final answer.
Nelson (6-0, 210) was considered the third-best inside linebacker in the country by ESPN last February. But he had some issues his freshman season and didn't play for the Hurricanes. According to UM spokesman Chris Freet, no football player had requested a transfer or release of scholarship as of Saturday morning.
> Saturday, the Hurricanes received a commitment from Coral Gables middle linebacker Denzel Perryman during his official visit according to Canesport and InsideTheU.com. We'll have more on Perryman later.
