“JoJo” has displayed the ability and versatility that proves valuable to a head coach on any level.

"Joseph will play wide receiver for us this year, but can also fill in at quarterback,” Istrouma head coach Troy Jones told TheInsiders. “He has the ability to also play (quarterback), but it would be tough for anybody to beat out (incumbent QB) Alfred Newman>“<.p>

Shropshire had a terrific junior season, completing 30-of-50 passes for 425 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions. He also caught eight passes for 150 yards in addition to rushing for 115 yards on only seven carries, with three of those going for scores.

The five-foot-eleven, 190-lb athlete has posted a 4.6 forty, 11.0 100-meter, 195-lb bench and 325-lb squat. His top four schools include LSU, Texas Southern, Alcorn State and Grambling. He plans to camp at LSU and Alcorn State this summer.
