Biography:

 JT Surratt (6'2, 290 - South Carolina) is a familiar name to many SEC fans, as he starred on the University of South Carolina defensive line next to Jadeveon Clowney.  Surratt comes to Columbus with previous arena experience, after spending a stint out west with the Arizona Rattlers.  Surratt's impressive career began as a three star prospect out of Parkland High School in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  The all-state selection was soon signed to the Gamecocks and exploded on to the scene during Surratt's junior season, in 2013, as a starter for all 13 games for USC.  The following season, Surratt's senior campaign, he was voted as a preseason All-SEC selection and named one of four team captains for the Gamecocks.  Surratt repeated his production from his junior season, starting every game for USC and was the leader of a young defensive unit.  Surratt finished his collegiate career with 79 tackles, 11 TFLs, and 2 sacks - earning himself an invite to the 2015 NFL Combine.  Even as a projected late round draft pick, Surratt never got his opportunity to show what he could do at the NFL level.  Still having the desire to play professional football, Surratt comes to Columbus looking to be an impact player in the NAL and looking to show what the NFL missed out on.
