Dantonio on Nailor: "Jalen comes from an outstanding high school program in Bishop Gorman that has a great coaching staff and has won multiple national championships. He has the experience of being in a college-bound atmosphere, both athletically and academically, and has competed against some of the best football teams in the country. He has solid size, great hands, and can really run after the catch. He was an extremely productive offensive player. He can also return punts and kicks. The other thing that impressed me is that he's a tough, physical defensive player as well."
