The Sanders show won’t be leaving Colorado any time soon.
Head coach Deion Sanders shot down rumors last week that he might jump to the NFL after the fast success he’s enjoyed turning across the No. 19 Buffaloes, who’re 3-0.
A part of that winning formula involves his sons: quarterback Shedeur Sanders and safety Shilo Sanders.
Very like their Hall of Fame father, the Sanders sons shall be back in Boulder next yr.
Each players shall be eligible to declare for the 2024 NFL Draft, in keeping with For The Win.
All three attended Sunday’s NFL game between the Denver Broncos and Washington Commanders.
The Commanders rallied for a 35-33 road victory in Denver.
While sitting in a box, the subject of his sons going pro was broached.
In Prime Time style, Sanders shut that down. Quick.
“Shilo said, ‘Oh, wow, Shedeur, look. You gonna be within the NFL next yr,” Sanders recounted.
“I said, ‘No, he ain’t.’… You all ain’t going nowhere.’”
Shedeur has received early support for the Heisman Trophy and is being touted as a possible first-round pick.
Amongst those helping him improve his game is seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady, who’s stayed in contact with Sanders the last couple of years and provided Shedeur with mentoring.
Sanders and the Buffaloes open Pac-12 play Saturday, and it won’t be easy.
First up is No. 10 Oregon, followed by No. 5 USC.
