Jackson State lands Three-Star QB Commit

JACKSON, Mississippi -- Jackson State has fallen on hard times the past two seasons, posting an 8-15 record.

North Pike quarterback Juwan Adams still sees the potential the Tigers' program possesses, now under the watch of Tony Hughes.

It was so enticing that Adams, a three-star prospect according to 247 Sports' Composite Ranking, verbally committed to JSU on Tuesday night and gave Hughes the highest-rated prospect of his recruiting class thus far.

"Being able to come in with the new coaching staff and hopefully change the tide in Jackson, that ultimately led to my decision," Adams said.

Adams also had offers from Louisiana Tech, Louisville, Memphis and Troy. Adams, who is listed at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, passed for 3,368 yards, 29 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while rushing for 912 yards and 11 scores as a senior.

The Tigers offered Adams at the beginning of January, and he took his official visit two weekends ago. His relationship with Hughes goes back further than that.
