Nolan Kelleher

School: Wando

Hometown: Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina

Height: 6-6

Weight: 305

Position: Offensive Line

Rivals Ranking: 4-star

Recruited by: Brad Lawing

Notable: Kelleher was named to the 2013 American Family Insurance All-USA South Carolina football team after starting on the offensive line for four consecutive seasons at Wando High School.

Kelleher enrolled early at Florida and is working out with the team, preparing for spring practice. While his early enrollment will help him get a leg up on the field, Kelleher was already ahead of schedule in the classroom. Kelleher informed Gator Country that based on AP classes and dual-credit classes that he took in high school he will be a semester ahead of the rest of the recruiting class in the classroom. Kelleher wants to study engineering at Florida.

Quotable: An excellent student, Kelleher said that the academics at Florida really sold him on the school. He enrolled early in January and is already ahead of schedule in the classroom.

“Academics are very important to me. I saw the engineering program and that the credits they accepted through AP and dual-credit meant that when I get there, I will already have an entire semester knocked out before I even step foot on campus. That’s a real plus, especially for engineering. The coaches really push the academics.”

Nick de la Torre
A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
