Coach Mangurian on Nizialek: Early decision. Came to Columbia football camp. Very mature and disciplined young man. Big legs, can and does put the ball in the end zone on kick-offs. Effective as a punter and could add valuable depth as a freshman. It is all about consistency at this position. Will compete in training camp. The night before I made a campus visit to Cameron’s school, he took the last shot to win a basketball game. That’s what we are looking for.
