And we talk about being family and the guys that come through here will tell you that they are family,” James Clemens head coach Wade Waldrop said. “I know I got about six or seven guys that dying to work out with our guys, but I cant let them do that. Hopefully these (COVID-19) guidelines will roll back later in July and we can have more of our former players around.”

Jamil will be headed back to campus as part of the second phase of players returning to voluntary workouts.
