Jahmere Irvin-Sills opts for FCS after leaving Miss. St.


Another post, another college football player finding himself a new home ahead of the start of summer camp.

The latest to find a fresh landing spot is Jahmere Irvin-Sills, who North Dakota announced has been added to the FCS team’s roster. The cornerback had spent the past two years at Mississippi State.

Because he is transferring into an FCS program, Irvin-Stills will be eligible to play immediately in 2015.  Counting this season, Irvin-Sills will have three years of eligibility remaining.

“Jahmere will be with us for fall camp and we expect him to compete for playing time right away and contribute to the 2015 season,” UND head coach Bubba Schweigert said in a statement. “He spent two seasons with an SEC program and displayed the skills to play physical football along with the quickness and agility to cover receivers. We’re excited to have him join the program.”

Irvin-Sills, a three-star member of MSU’s 2013 recruiting class, played in nine games in 2014 after taking a redshirt as a true freshman.
