Deion Sanders lands his best recruit at Jackson State University: his son, Shedeur Sanders shortly after he was named the program’s football coach on Sept. 21.

Shedeur Sanders flipped his commitment from Florida Atlantic to Jackson State on Friday. Shedeur is a four-star quarterback and the No. 14 pro-style QB in the country for the Class of 2021, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. 

“I couldn’t pass up a opportunity to help level the playing field & pursue equality for HBCu’s ! Dad I got your back! JSU #theeilove COMMITTED,” Shedeur Sanders wrote on Twitter:

Sanders currently coaches Shedeur as the offensive coordinator at Trinity Christian School in south Dallas. The Tigers started their season with a 27-26 loss to Mississippi high school Madison-Ridgeland Academy on Aug. 21. 

Going into his senior season, 6-foot-1, 198-pound Shedeur had 8,925 passing yards with 123 touchdowns and 19 interceptions in three seasons as Trinity Christian’s starter, according to MaxPreps. He also ran for 225 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior. 

Per 247Sports, Shedeur is the first four-star commit in Jackson State history. Three-star defensive tackle Braezhon Ross held the designation as the highest-rated commit in program history for a couple of weeks. The three-star from Las Vegas announced his commitment to Jackson State on Oct. 14
