While Grambling State University hosts a roster full of talent the players below who could make an impact on the season.
QB Elijah Walker #3
The dual-threat quarterback has been at multiple universities including Louisiana Tech and the University of Louisiana Monroe. The transfer from Hinds Community College is one of four new quarterbacks on the team. Head Coach Broderick Fobbs plans to play a lot of players during this spring season, so it is possible Walker sees the field.
CB Kenan Fontenot #23
Kenan Fontenot was selected to the 2021 Spring Preseason All-SWAC Second Team. Big things are expected of him after having a good season in 2019. The Tigers will also need corners to step up after the departure of All-SWAC First Team corner Joe McWilliams.
OL Kyree Wade-McLeod #78
Going into this season, solid offensive line play will be key for the Tigers as they bring in new freshman. Wade-McLeod looks to be a stable piece on the line as he is apart of the 2021 Spring Preseason All-SWAC Second Team. Wade-McLeod is one of three seniors on the offensive line this season.
