Deion Sanders made it clear that one of his goals as the head football coach at Jackson State would be to bring top-rated recruits to a small school, and the Hall of Famer is already delivering on that promise.
De’Jahn Warren, a four-star cornerback recruit from Lackawanna College, announced on Wednesday that he is signing with Jackson State. Warren, who is a consensus top-five junior college prospect, had previously committed to Georgia.

That is obviously huge for Jackson State. The Tigers have not had a winning season since 2013, so the fact that a player would choose to play for Sanders over an SEC powerhouse program is significant.
Warren becomes the second-highest-ranked recruit to commit to Jackson State behind Shedeur Sanders, Deion’s son. Shedeur, a quarterback, flipped his commitment from FAU to Jackson State last month.
Sanders made a classic “Prime Time” entrance when he was introduced at Jackson State (video here), and he is doing his best to live up to the hype thus far.
