Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Tennessee State's football program is heading into preseason camp with two new FBS additions.

On Thursday, coach Rod Reed announced the addition of running back Darion Hall from the University of Miami and tight end A.C. Leonard from the University of Florida.

Hall, a native of Naples, Fla., played in one game as a redshirt freshman last year.

Leonard, a Jacksonville producted, appeared in nine games as a freshman last year, catching eight passes for 99 yards. In April, he pleaded no contest to a charge of misdemeanor battery stemming from an altercation with his live-in girlfriend

Said Reed: "A.C. Leonard was one of the top tight ends in the country coming out of high school. With the youth we have at running back, we needed a veteran presence and we decided to bring in Darion. These two young men will be valuable additions to our team."

Tennessee State players will report to preseason camp on Sunday. Their first practice will be held Monday.
