JACKSON, Miss. - The Jackson State University football team has officially signed 15 football players to National Letters of Intent. One recruit received an academic scholarship to JSU to make 16 the total number of players to officially commit to play for the Tigers Wednesday.
Head Coach Rick Comegy looked to strengthen the offensive line as well as shore the linebacker and defensive back positions.
"We wanted to go out and find more talent on the offensive line," Comegy said. "We needed more depth on that side of the ball to be a bon-a-fide Division I offensive line. With this O-Line being young the future for the program is really bright.
"On the defensive side of the ball we wanted to pick up some more skill position players. And I think we have done that, we have been fortunate to find good players. But, we will look to add some more talent down the line."
