5 JSU Tigers primed for a big season in 2017

JACKSON, Mississippi -- There's no doubt the Tigers have some big shoes to fill before they take the field against TCU on Sept. 2.

And while there is plenty of time for players to step up in Fall camp, there's a handful of players on which Jackson State is already counting.

Here's five Tigers who are primed for a big season in 2017.

No other player had the kind of breakout performance in the spring game like Lyles did.

The red-shirt sophomore completed an efficient 23 of 26 passes for 237 yards and five touchdowns to lead the Blue team past the White team 41-38.

With the departure of Jarin Morikawa, who decided to forego his senior season after suffering another concussion in the spring game, the quarterback race appears to be Lyles’ to lose.

Although he played sparingly last season, he’s a guy who brings athleticism — something the Tiger offense lacked last season — at that position.
