ESPN’s 300th midfielder Shedeur Sanders has transferred his commitment from FAU to Jackson State University, where his father, Deion Sanders, is the head coach.
Shedeur initially pledged to the FAU in July and was the highest-ranked commitment to the program from the Class of 2021. When his father was hired by Jackson State in September, it seemed as if Shedeur’s transition was only a problem. time. .
He made his official decision on Friday and is currently the highest rated prospect Jackson State has ever had, and he is the only ESPN 300 prospect to commit to HBCU. Sanders is ranked 60th overall, a 200-pound, 6-foot-2 midfielder from Trinity Christian School in Cedar Hill, Texas.
Dad’s decision to move to a new school was not a difficult one. The two have had a coach-midfield relationship, as Deion served as Shedeur’s attack coordinator in high school.
In the past three seasons, Shedeur has thrown 8,925 yards, 123 touches the ball and 19 interceptions. He’s been running 198 yards and 22 touches of the ball in that time while helping his team win two state championships.
