Jordan Talley Nicholls State Spring League

By Justin Kelm

Jordan Talley is a name that should be known. Talley spent his collegiate career with the Colonels of Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA. Talley can contribute as a blocking tight end as well as make key receptions for any offense.

He will play with current The Spring League Alphas Quarterback Chase Fourcade and Wide Receiver Dion Ray. Talley made an explosive play that stood out to me last season, while the Colonels battled the McNeese State Cowboys he hauled in a touchdown against two defenders. Talley is also playing in The Spring League. Talley is looking forward to this opportunity and using it to continue his football career.
