The South Carolina Gamecocks got a commitment from the son of a legend Tuesday night when Shilo Sanders, the son of former NFL Pro Bowl cornerback and MLB outfielder Deion Sanders, committed to play football with coach Will Muschamp in a video on his Twitter account.
Sanders is a three-star defensive back from Cedar Hill, Texas, in the class of 2019. He chose the Gamecocks over offers from several high-profile programs including Florida State, Georgia, Nebraska, Oregon and Tennessee.
The 6-foot, 185-pounder from Trinity Christian School had 19 tackles and five interceptions as a senior in 2018. He made an official visit to South Carolina during the 2018 season, and made a surprise unofficial visit last weekend. Sanders commented on the atmosphere at South Carolina following his official visit for the Texas A&M game.
