Tulane received their second commitment for the 2021 recruiting cycle.

Holy Cross running back Jaden Handy from Holy Cross considered an offer from UTSA before choosing the hometown Green Wave. Interest is expected to intensify as the process continues.

Handy (5-9, 193) has 4.55 speed and anchors the 200 meter relay team at Holy Cross.

A very versatile back, Handy is a threat both in the backfield and the slot. He has terrific vision, quickly identifying the backside hole. Handy is a patient runner who will cut back against the grain and maintain his balance. His skill set allows him to play in a number of roles.

Handy joins quarterback Billy Wiles as the early Tulane pledges for 2021.
