Trying to fix this Nexus 5, it's pretty screwed up.

I'm trying to help a buddy of mine fix his Nexus 5 recently bought after convincing him to get one. After rooting it and trying out some different ROMs, he saw some leftover folders from ROMs/Apps that he wanted to delete (he's very "clean" with his tech in that he doesn't want anything on that he doesn't want/need). However, using ClockworkMod he formatted pretty much everything, and now when trying to turn on the phone, it gets stuck at the "Google" screen. My computer registers it as an Android device when using the bootloader or CWM, but not as a Nexus 5 that I could flash. Any help/ideas?

I guess you are a noob (no offence). I'd tell you push the zip file via adb. Google has plenty of guides on how to do it.

Or if you're scared of adb, download wugfresh toolkit and select the flash stock and unroot (phone semi Bricked option). Once you've flashed that, re flash twrp and copy the zip file over.
A word of advice, always keep the rom zip file and gapps because you never know when you'll need it. Deleting it just makes everything messy.

Install this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2588979 skip the driver install part.
Download stock rom https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images and extract it. Connect the phone in fastboot mode. Install drivers http://developer.android.com/sdk/win-usb.html
Double click on flash-all.bat in the extracted stock rom's folder.

To avoid further problems use twrp or philz touch recovery.
