Deion Sanders and the Jackson State football program continue to roll on the recruiting trail, but if they're truly going to be built into a premier destination for players, they need money. 

The former NFL star turned college football head coach has done a lot to help with that.

This week, he got even more help, as Diddy pledged $1 million to the program.

That's pretty incredible. 

Sanders has already landed some of the top recruits in the country, most notably five-star Travis Hunter, who spurned Florida State to attend Jackson State.

Diddy is hoping that becomes more of a trend.

Well done, Diddy.
