Deion Sanders Jr., 5-foot-8, 175-pound cornerback from Flower Mound Marcus High in Texas is trying to prove his haters wrong at the Under Armour All-American Bowl.
"It has been amazing, the whole Disney World, the hotel, the yacht club, the whole thing has just been amazing, especially just showing everyone I belong out here," Sanders informed. "All the rumors about me being here because of my dad or people saying his dad got him here. I belong out here and i am locking down dudes going to Miami, everywhere, Florida, Alabama, everywhere."
"It is a blessing. God has a plan for everybody and nobody can stop that and I am just happy to be here."
Sanders Jr. is still learning to play corner back, it is his first year to actually play the position after playing quarterback as a junior, and the game is helping him develop his skills at an all-american rate.
"This is my first year playing corner and I think I am doing good at it, but like I said this is just my first year doing it. But like I said I am just getting better and better everyday," said Sanders Jr., who is also open to playing any position on the next level.
"Whatever they want me to do I am going to do it. Whatever position they tell me to play i am going to play and i am going to try and be the best at it."
On the recruiting trail Sanders Jr. is reporting offers from North Texas and Houston and that list has stayed pretty consistent since the last time he updated things with Scout.com in the state playoffs.
"Same thing, same as last time," Sanders Jr. Informed.
"I hope something opens up, but if not I have to take a hard look at the two I have and I am going to make the best out of it."
"I have been to a North Texas game. I have been to Houston. I have been to one of their camps. I man both are pretty good schools."
A good showing in the game against top-flight competition on national television could help him open up some more doors.
