About Tejan Koroma
Prior to his time in professional football, Koroma was a standout player at BYU from 2014-17. The Allen, Texas native started in all 51 games he played in as a four-year starter for the Cougars.
Following his time at BYU, Koroma went undrafted in 2018 and signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent.
After the Chiefs waived him in 2019, the former BYU player was selected by the Houston Roughnecks in the 2020 XFL Supplemental Draft. He played for the Roughnecks before the league was shut down in April 2020.
In 2021, Koroma spent time with The Spring League’s Jousters.
As the USFL rebooted earlier this year, Koroma was drafted by the Panthers in March.
Michigan currently owns a 1-5 record and sits in third place in the USFL’s North division.
