Deion Sanders son, Shilo is following in his father’s famous footsteps.
Shilo Sanders is a 2019 cornerback out of Trinity Christian high school in Cedar Hill, Texas. Ranked as the No. 290 prospect in the class, Shilo now has a chance to follow in his father’s footsteps and play for the Florida State Seminoles.
“He’s an FSU O.G., so he found out first,” Shilo said. “He was talking to Coach (David) Kelly and they got off the phone and he told me I had the offer. He told me, it was just like, ‘You have to work now. You really have to focus on what you’re supposed to do because people are going to be coming after you 100 percent.'”
At 6 foot, 178 pounds, Shilo looks a lot like his father.
He has the opportunity to attend the same school as his father, or create his own path. While he hasn’t decided which is best for him, Shilo sees the positive in both options and welcomes the attention his last name brings.
“If I choose to take that route, and follow in my dad’s footsteps, then that’s excellent,” Sanders said. “But, I’m definitely interested in doing my own thing, too, so both could be gratifying. No matter where I go, I’m going to have the same target on my back, so it’s just finding what’s best for me.”
Jr. Primetime sounds like a perfect nickname for this kid. It beats the hell out of Shilo.
