Jackson State Offers Four John Tyler Players On The Same Day
A representative from Jackson State visited John Tyler on Thursday and left the campus with four new prospects to recruit. Four.
Running back Cameron Grant, receiver Michael Givens-Washington and receiver KeAndre Street are all on the board thanks to the Tigers program. Left tackle Chance Billington now has a second college choice to go alongside SMU.
John Tyler announced the Jackson State offers through its official Twitter account.
Grant (5-9, 170) broke out this past year as a midseason replacement at running back for the injured Justin Samples. He ended up with 873 rushing yards, 118 receiving yards and 14 total touchdowns as John Tyler worked its way to an 11-2 final record, a co-district championship and a third-round appearance in the Class 6A Division II playoffs.
Grant will be a junior this season.
Givens-Washington (5-8, 160), a rising senior, recorded a team second-best 782 yards behind Texas signee Damion Miller on 52 passes. He scored eight touchdowns, which tied for the team lead among receivers.
Louisiana College also offered Givens-Washington on Thursday.
Street (6-4, 195), a rising junior, caught 31 passes for 555 yards and six scores.
Billington (6-4, 275), a rising junior, blocked for Houston quarterback signee Bryson Smith and served a major purpose in John Tyler's screen pass suite of play calls.
All four players have accepted invitations to the ETSN.fm + APEC Football Recruiting Combine on May 21.
Jackson State went 3-8 this season. All three of its wins came against fellow Southwestern Athletic Conference schools.
SWAC members abstain from the NCAA Division I FCS playoffs, but the winner of the league's championship game faces the champion of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference at the Celebration Bowl in Atlanta.
Jackson State has 16 conference championships in its history.
