Tulane and LSU have added to their rosters prior to football signing day.

Jacquez Norman (6-0, 190) has committed to the Green Wave after he considered offers from Jacksonville State, Eastern Kentucky, Southern Miss, Tennessee-Martin and Tennessee State. At Cane Ridge High School outside of Nashville, he totaled 1,080 yards rushing with 12 scores last season. However, Norman will concentrate on defense at safety for Tulane.

Josh Williams, a 5-foot-10, 180 pound running back who had offers from Stetson, Drake, Dayton, Lafayette and Colorado State-Pueblo will join the Tigers as a preferred walk-on. The Houston native, who has been an excellent kick returner on the high school level, has good vision and acceleration in the open field. He accounted for 1,238 yards rushing with 22 total touchdowns as a senior including 35 carries for 436 yards and six touchdowns versus Thomas High.

Meanwhile, Alabama lost one of their top signees from the 2018 class with the transfer plans of former 5 star defensive end Eyabi Anoma. The Baltimore native played in 13 games for the Tide, making nine stops and a pair of tackles for loss as an edge rusher and outside linebacker.

Anoma (6-5, 245), who was rated the fourth best overall prospect in the ’18 class nationally, has Maryland or Michigan as potential landing spots.
