Errington McRae came to Memphis in 2021 as a three-star prospect. Before committing to Memphis, McRae was headed to play for the University of Arkansas; but ultimately he made his choice to stay with the Tigers. McRae was redshirted his freshman year. But the following season in 2022, the 6-1 tight end saw action in 12 games for the Tigers. Despite seeing game action, McRae didn’t record any stats.
Since the transfer portal opened, Jackson State football has snatched up more than 10 players to fill up its roster for the upcoming season.
