Former Jackson State linebacker Nyles Gaddy announced Saturday afternoon that he will be transferring to Missouri to play the 2023 season. Gaddy is a ballhawk and had an incredible season at Jackson State under Deion Sanders.

This is not Gaddy’s first stint in the SEC, either. He originally enrolled in Tennessee’s 2018 class, but could not find playing time and transferred to Jackson State. He originally hails from Nashville.

Gaddy announced his decision via his personal Twitter account Saturday afternoon:

Gaddy totaled 6.5 sacks last season with Jackson State, also adding a forced fumble and a pass deflection.

Eliah Drinkwitz did some work Saturday, too. Not only did Gaddy commit, but the Tigers also earned a pledge from former Houston guard Cam’Ron Johnson. Not a bad day at the office!
