Jackson CC’s Nick Minnerath verbals to University of Detroit Mercy

JACKSON, Michigan — Jackson Community College stud sophomore Nick Minnerath has made a verbal commitment to the University of Detroit Mercy.

Minnerath has been arguably the MCCAA’s most dominant force this season. The 6-8 forward orginally from Massachusetts is averaging 21 points per game with 7.5 rebounds and 2.6 blocks. Better still are his field goal percentages: 57 percent from the field and a ridiculous 47 percent from 3-point range.

Minnerath will replace former Mott Community College standout Thomas Kennedy at UDM. Kennedy has filled the hybrid forward role for Coach Ray McCallum and the Titans for the last two seasons.

Best of luck to Jackson Head Coach Steve Finamore, who will have to go out and find the talent to replace him.

“It’s a great boost for our program,” Finamore said on 1450 AM  in Jackson on Monday. ”I think this is going to help us big-time now.”
