Deion Sanders Jr. Commits to SMU

Updated: November 21, 2012

Remember a few months back we told you that Deion Sanders Jr. was going to prep school and preparing to make a decision on college later?

Well it looks like he picked a school and that school is Southern Methodist University.  Houston initially offered him a scholarship but apparently he didn’t take it.  Oh well that doesn’t matter now, Deion Jr. will be swagging all over the SMU campus soon:

Atlanta Sports Academy (GA) 2013 wide receiver Deion Sanders Jr. received an offer from SMU early Tuesday and committed to the Mustangs on the spot.

“It feels great knowing my hard work paid off and I am a part of this great program,” Sanders Jr. said. “Coach Jones and Coach Phillips are very close with the NFL, so their coaching ability is very good and I saw what Coach Phillips did with Houston and know his expertise can help me get to the next level.”

The 5-foot-7, 170-pound athlete had interest from Central Florida, South Florida and Rutgers, but he knew SMU was the place for him.
