How is Nasus' jungle viability?

Im trying to get better in the jungle (I never put much effort into it) and I find my biggest issue is I can't find someone I'm overly comfortable with. Nasus has been one of my favorite tops for a while, and I consistently do well with him.

I realise the jungle may gimp his Q damage, but is he still viable? Wither seems like a beast ganking skill, and his passive lifesteal seems like great sustain.

You spoony bard.

Yes. Nasus is great in the jungle. You max Spirit Fire and build aura items. Get ridiculously tanky and still do percentage damage with your ult + whatever Q farm you have managed to get. Your Q farm won't be nearly as high as it would be in top lane, but honestly it's not too bad, especially for the mid-game fights where it will be hard for anyone to fight you.

He is pretty much the #1 jungler in the game, so yeah I'd say its viable.

He's not as scary late game as top nasus since you don't farm your Q all that much in the jungle but he just does such a good job at getting gold for the rest of your team that it doesn't really matter. Ghost + wither + spirit fire gives him great ganks and he can solo dragon at level 6 + shred through barons HP quickly late game.
