2021 quarterback Shedeur Sanders is a three-star recruit with a five-star pedigree given that he's the son of Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders. The younger Sanders has picked up another huge offer as he heads into his junior season.

Taking to Twitter over the weekend, Sanders announced that he had received an offer from Tennessee. The post included a video of him touring the Tennessee campus and running a few drills for the Vols' camp while wearing a team uniform.

247Sports' Composite Rankings list Sanders as the No. 339 overall prospect in the Class of 2021. He is the No. 17 pro-style quarterback in the country, and the No. 48 prospect from the state of Texas.

Last year at Trinity Christian School, Sanders threw for 2,977 yards, 42 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. The year before, he had an equally impressive 2,360 yards, 34 touchdowns, and eight interceptions.

The month of June has been a massive boon for Sanders as he has now picked up offers from Tennessee, Alabama, South Carolina, and Georgia Tech.

He also has outstanding offers from Georgia, Michigan, LSU, Florida, and his father's alma mater, Florida State.

Sanders is going his own way to college football stardom, and he has certainly been impressing plenty of coaches along the way.
