He may be best known right now for being the son of a college and NFL hall-of-famer, but cornerback Shilo Sanders of Cedar Hill, TX, son of Deion Sanders, is hoping to make a name for himself at the next level and beyond. He will begin that process this weekend with his first official visit and it will be to USC.
Sanders was offered by the Gamecocks in late September and he has been in conversation with Will Muschamp and Travaris Robinson since then. The Gamecocks are still shopping for corners in their 2019 class since they will lose a pair of senior starters after the season and three overall,
The visit also will give Sanders a chance to watch another of the offering teams in Texas A&M. He picked up an offer from his dad’s alma mater, Florida State, Tuesday night. He also has offers from Colorado State, Syracuse, UCF, Arkansas, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon State, Georgia and others.
He said he also will take an official visit to Colorado State in December. He has not yet settled on favorites and said he’s still open to all the schools recruiting him.
According to MaxPreps, thru five games this season Sanders recorded 10 tackles, 1 interception and recovered 1 fumble.
And like his dad, the younger Sanders also is a baseball prospect as an outfielder with offers in that sport from Oregon State and UCF among others.
By the way, his brother Shedeur is the sophomore quarterback on the team and already holds offers from Florida State, Florida, Houston, LSU, Louisville, Oregon, Penn State, Syracuse and Baylor according to Rivals.
