Elkhorn South's Makhi Nelson-Douglas commits to Northern Illinois football

Makhi Nelson-Douglas

Elkhorn South outside linebacker Makhi Nelson-Douglas has committed to Northern Illinois.

Elkhorn South senior Makhi Nelson-Douglas announced his commitment to Northern Illinois on Friday via Twitter.

“The coaching staff I really connected with,” Nelson-Douglas said. “I was lucky enough to get on campus before everything was shut down due to COVID. A lot of the other schools I wasn’t able to get on campus. Overall, I just thought it was a good fit.”

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound outside linebacker chose NIU over scholarship offers from Colorado State, Army and North Dakota State.

Nelson-Douglas, a two-way player for the Storm last season, was recruited as a hybrid outside linebacker/safety. He joins Omaha Westside lineman Cade Haberman as in-state players in the 2021 cycle to commit to Northern Illinois.
