3-Star QB Juwan Adams' transfer leaves Jackson State in a bind

JACKSON, Mississippi -- Even before quarterback Juwan Adams decided to transfer following his freshman season at Jackson State, the Tigers had question marks on the offensive side of the football.

When they couldn’t get a push up front, which was all too often for a run-first offense, they struggled to score. A lot of that had to do with injuries to key personnel, but it was also the result of pedestrian quarterback play.

Tony Hughes and his staff hoped that Adams — a three-star recruit from North Pike and the crown jewel of their first recruiting class — was going to change that. That hope disappeared earlier this week with the freshman’s decision to transfer to Southwest Community College.

“He let us know Tuesday that he had decided to transfer,” Hughes said. “We’re disappointed, but we know he’s doing what he feels is best for him and his family at this point in time.”

Adams has not commented publicly and did not respond to multiple calls and texts requesting comment for this story, leaving us to speculate on the reasons behind his decision to leave.

He'll rejoin his former high school teammate Javian Jackson, who originally signed with Jackson State before landing at Southwest.
