2017 East Mississippi CB T.J. Jallow will take a visit to check out the Cardinals this weekend

2017 East Mississippi CB T.J. Jallow (6-2, 207) committed to Louisville early in the process and his status with the Cardinals is unchanged. He'll be on campus to visit his favorite school this coming weekend to check things out during their spring game...

The talented corner currently holds offers from seven schools -- Iowa State, Memphis, Middle Tennessee, Southern Miss, UTSA, UAB and Louisville -- and he'll visit the Cardinals this weekend.

"I'll be up there on Saturday for their spring game," Jallow said. "I'm excited."

Jallow also said he's planning trips this spring and summer to visit Ole Miss, Florida State, Memphis, North Carolina and Mississippi State as well.

As a freshman last season, Jallow worked his way into the EMCC secondary rotation at both corner and safety, and he finished with 24 tackles, one forced fumble, an interception and three pass breakups.

"Honestly, it really depends on the opponent for where I line up," Jallow noted. "My team needed me at corner mor, so that was my primary position, but I can play either safety or corner. It doesn't really matter to me.

"I'm a ballhawk. I always am around the ball and I'm physical and I love to play that way. I really like making plays on the ball."

As far as what he's working on this offseason, Jallow has been in the film room and also out on the field as well.

"I definitely want to become a better student of the game," Jallow said. "I am studying a lot of film, looking for tendencies and stuff like that so that I can put myself in a better position to make plays for my team."

Jallow just missed qualifying after a stellar prep career at Olive Branch (Ms.) High School, so he decided to play for the Lions.

"They were the top dawgs," Jallow said. "I knew if I came here, I would be going up against some of the top JUCO players in the country every day and the other thing is, it's so isolated and in the middle of nowhere that it just allowed me to focus on football and school and just grind."

Jallow is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2016 football season.
