Deion Sanders, The New Coach at HBCU, Jackson State University - Already Making Offers to Star HS Recruits!

Deion Sanders, The New Coach at HBCU, Jackson State University - Already Making Offers to Star HS Recruits!
Posted By: Will Moss on September 29, 2020

By Andrew Ivins

Deion Sanders was hired Sept. 21 to be the new head coach at Jackson State and on his first day on the job, the NFL Hall of Famer extended a scholarship offer to five-star defensive tackle Masson Smith.

At the time it looked like Sanders was trying to make a splash and get the Tigers in national headlines, but it appears that the “Prime Coach” is planning to try and get as much blue-chip talent as possible down to Jackson, Mississippi.

“I want to coach like an Urban Meyer," Sanders said this past weekend on the Big Noon Kickoff. "I want a quarterback like Matt Leinart and an all-purpose back like Reggie Bush. That's a start right there. If I can get those three, I can have a program that's unbelievable. But listen, I'm looking for guys that love the game of football. We have a wonderful staff that's going to surround me. They have 84 years of playing and coaching experience in the NFL. Some good guys.



They're ecstatic about getting this program going."

247Sports took a look at some of the other notable recruits that Sanders has offered since he took over at the HBCU which has struggled in recent years, compiling just a 21-40 record since 2014.
5-star OL Amarius Mims
4-star WR Deion Smith (LSU commit)
4-star OL Tyler Booker
4-star CB Khamauri Rogers (LSU commit)
DE Jimmori Robinson
3-star CB Jadarrius Perkins (Oregon commit)
5-star DL Maason Smith
4-star ATH Kadarius Calloway (Alabama commit)
4-star QB Shedeur Sanders (FAU commit)
