“Pops said he needed some dawgs! So I’m joining my brother to help change the game at JSU and level the HBCU playing field,” Shilo, a redshirt freshman from the University of South Carolina, took to Twitter about his decision to transfer to JSU. He previously had 32 tackles and a pass deflection in nine games for the Gamecocks this season.
Shilo will be joining his younger brother Shedeur, who was a four-star high school quarterback. He transferred to JSU from Florida Atlantic and also made it official recently.
The father-and-sons tandem hopes to take college football in HBCUs to the next level.
“This amazing HBCU has always enjoyed a high level of commitment academically and athletically,” said Deion when he joined JSU Tigers in September. “It’s my desire to continue this storied tradition and history of JSU and prayerfully bring more national recognition to the athletes, the university, the Sonic Boom of the South, and HBCUs in general. I am TRULY proud to be a part of the JSU Tiger family. ‘I BELIEVE.’”
