Former Section II Star Jahlil Nails Joins Us
One year ago, Jahlil Nails was one of the best players in Section II while playing at Columbia High School. Now, he's starting to see some consistent minutes in his freshman season at Central Connecticut State University.
Nails is averaging 5.9 points per game this season, but he's scored in double-figures five times thus far for the Blue Devils, including a career-high 13 points in his last game.
Nails has also earned six starts thus far, including at Boston College of the ACC. He's also starting to play more consistent minutes, playing 25 minutes or more in each of his last two games.
We spoke to Nails today about the adjustment from high school to college ball, being a part of one of the most accomplished graduating classes in Section II, and about his participation in the epic five-overtime Sectional game between Columbia and Guilderland in 2014.
