ASU adds JUCO transfer Young-Battle to QB mix

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Brian Jenkins has added Jujuan Young-Battle to the quarterback competition at Alabama State.

A junior college transfer from Ellsworth Community College in Iowa, Young-Battle threw for 3,118 yards and 26 touchdowns in 11 games last season.

Jenkins saw the Orlando native play at Jones High and said he’s been following him ever since. When asked who No. 4 was after Friday’s spring practice, Jenkins played coy at first, but ultimately let the cat out the bag as he foresees a bright future for Young-Battle at ASU.

“He has a chance to be a really good player,” Jenkins said about Young-Battle, who also played receiver in high school.
