TSU Football Adds 3 Signees To 2021 Class


Football TSU Sports Information

Texas Southern head football coach Clarence McKinney added three student-athletes to its 2021 recruiting class on Wednesday.

The final three signatures nearly represent the entire state of Texas as the Dallas Metroplex, Houston area and Corpus Christi are represented. The Tigers added to the offensive side of the ball with a quarterback and wide receiver while the defense picked up a defensive back.

Despite having its usual recruiting cycle disrupted due to COVID-19, the Tiger football staff worked tirelessly in securing a total of 19 signatures for its 2021 recruiting class. TSU got a jump start on securing its class by signing 16 student-athletes in December.
