Tyrell Nelson has signed a professional contract with BC Rustavi (Georgia-Superleague - the highest tier league in Georgia) for the 2017-2018 season.
"I'm excited to get my career started with Rustavi," said Nelson. "I believe this team is where I need to be and I can't wait to get there and help in any way I can."
Nelson - an All-Big South Honoree - averaged 12.9 points and 7.0 rebounds per game in his senior year with Gardner-Webb."Tyrell was a beast in college and I don't see why he won't continue to be for Rustavi," said Interperformances Usa's Managing Director of Basketball Shawn Farmer. "We are eager to see what Tyrell will accomplish in Georgia's top league."
