Deion Sanders has seen his sonA ShiloA rack up scholarship offers through the recruiting process in the past few years. The most recent offer, however, was just a little different as it came from Sanders' alma mater,A Florida State.

The younger Sanders is a Class of 2019 cornerback out of Trinity Christian School in Cedar Hill, Texas. Ranked as the No. 290 prospect in the class, Shilo now has a chance to follow in his father's footsteps and play for the Seminoles.

"To me, it's extremely a blessing to have the same opportunity my father had and to potentially have the opportunity to carry on his legacy," Shilo said.

His father was an All-American corner for Florida State in the late 1980s, won the Jim Thorpe Award in 1988 and went on to have a Hall of Fame career in the NFL. Normally the recruit is the first to find out about the offer and relay the message to his parents, but because of Deion's connection to Florida State, it was the other way around when the Seminoles decided to offer his son.
