  02/21/21 - Jalon JonesJr/2023, Jackson State, 6-3, 220 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Jalon Jones threw for two touchdowns and ran for another as Jackson State rolled past NAIA Edward Waters 53-0 in Deion Sanders' coaching debut on Sunday. Kymani Clarke scored two rushing touchdowns. Warren Newman showed some dazzling speed as a wideout and kick returner and caught a 6-yard pass from Jones for JSU's first score. After a week of rare freezing weather had many residents of Jackson waiting in long lines for bottled drinking water, the atmosphere among 12,000 fans sprinkled within Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium (44,215 capacity) was festive. National Guard soldiers shot a cannon and did pushups after Jackson State scores, and Sanders, an NFL Hall-of-Famer, had a bucket of ice dumped over his head at the end of the game as the people in the stands cheered the win. - Jackson State/AP College Football

  01/16/21 - Antwan OwensrSr/2022, Jackson State, 6-4, 275 (DS#999 DE) + More +

  Georgia Tech defensive lineman Antwan Owens will use his last season of eligibility elsewhere. The senior from Tallahassee, Fla., announced his decision Thursday to enter the transfer portal as a grad transfer. Owens, who is on track to graduate in the spring semester with a degree in history, technology and society, will have one season of eligibility remaining. Owens has played defensive end and tackle. Coming back from a season-ending lower-body injury in 2019, he played the final six games in 2020 and made eight tackles, one for loss, with one fumble recovery. A year ago, he started seven games and played eight before his injury, finishing with 21 tackles. He made one of the plays of the season, blocking a Miami field-goal try in the final minute of regulation to force overtime, where the Jackets upset the Hurricanes 28-21. - Atlanta Journal Constitution

  12/14/20 - Shilo SandersrSo/2024, Jackson State, 6-0, 195 (DS#12 SS) + More +

  Shilo Sanders, the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, is leaving South Carolina. The younger Sanders, a 6-foot, 195-pound defensive back from Cedar Hill, Texas, who played in nine games this season, has entered the NCAA's transfer portal, team spokesman Steve Fink said in a text Monday. Sanders was tied for seventh on the Gamecocks with 32 tackles. He becomes the latest defender to leave South Carolina since the firing of coach Will Muschamp last month. Cornerbacks Jaycee Horn and Israel Mukuamu both opted out of the season following Muschamp's dismissal. - AP College Football

  Linebacker Abdul-Malik McClain, who opted to enter the transfer portal after his family's relationship with USC and coach Clay Helton soured, has found a new home at Jackson State. McClain's mother, Shan, announced the news of his "next chapter" in a tweet Wednesday, eight days after she told The Times that Abdul-Malik and his brother, Munir, planned to leave USC. Munir McClain, the suspended wideout who became the focus of a federal probe into apparent unemployment fraud, initially entered the transfer portal along with his brother, but quickly removed his name.

For Abdul-Malik, there was little hesitation. With the NCAA expected to allow a one-time transfer exception in 2021, he should be granted immediate eligibility to play at Jackson State for new head coach - and NFL Hall of Famer - Deion Sanders. The notion of either McClain brother leaving seemed highly unlikely as recently as this summer. Abdul-Malik was expected to contribute as a rotational pass rusher in a new defense predicated on blitzing, while Munir continued to recover from a tear suffered last season to his anterior cruciate ligament. Both spoke glowingly of their ties to USC. - Los Angeles Times

  11/21/20 - Isaiah BoldenrJr/2023, Jackson State, 6-1, 200 (DS#43 CB) + More +

  Isaiah Bolden is coming to Jackson State to be part of the change he wants to see in the world. A former four-star recruit from Zephyrhills, Florida, Bolden announced his intent to transfer from Florida State to Jackson State last week. Speaking with the media Tuesday for the first time as a Jackson State Tiger, Bolden explained his decision. Bolden says he came to Jackson State for the opportunity not just to grow and prove himself as a football player but to do so at a historically black university.

Bolden wants to prove that football players from HBCUs can get to the NFL just like players from predominantly white institutions can. "I want to be part of the change," Bolden said. "It's going to take more than me to make the change. But at least I can help toward making the change. I'm taking on the responsibility to show recruits and transfers that you can come to an HBCU and get to the league. Me being a part of that change is a big thing for me." Bolden, who made nine tackles, two pass breakups and an interception for Florida State last season, said the motivation for this change comes from his experiences at Florida State. - Times Union
