Deion Sanders is one of the most-electric players in football history. His son, Shilo Sanders, is pretty good, too.
The class of 2019 cornerback out of Trinity Christian School in Cedar Hill, Texas is one of the top recruits at his position.
Today, he received a big-time scholarship offer. It’s from his father’s alma mater.
Shilo Sanders announced on Twitter today that he’s received a scholarship offer from Florida State.
“To me, it’s extremely a blessing to have the same opportunity my father had and to potentially have the opportunity to carry on his legacy,” Shilo said.

ESPN.com reports that Deion actually found out about the scholarship offer first:
“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 has similar size to his father coming out of high school and has scholarship offers from the likes of Georgia, Texas A&M, Nebraska, Oregon, South Carolina and others.
That’s pretty cool.
It remains unseen, though, if Shilo will be committing to Florida State. He has several other major offers.
