TSU Track Inks Jemarruse Amos

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Hurdler and jumper Jemarruse Amos has signed a letter of intent to become a member of the Tennessee State track and field team next season.

“With his ability to participate in the 110-meter hurdles and triple-jump, Amos gives us the ability to continue to be competitive on the track and in the field,” assistant coach Tara Myrick said. “I think he will come in, be a team player, a positive force and have a will to win.”

Amos is a highly-touted prospect from Jacksonville, Fla. who ranks as the fifth-best 110-meter hurdler in the state and 21st in the nation (14.04 seconds). He also has the 20th best triple-jump mark (46 inches) while competing for Raines HS.

The addition of Amos should help soften the blow of losing Michael Johnson, who will graduate this month.
