Deion Sanders has been accused of being a shady operator by an NCAA coaching counterpart ahead of his first season with Colorado.
Sanders controversially left Jackson State to become the new head coach of the Buffaloes last year and his inaugural campaign with his new team is sure to garner nationwide attention.
Sanders brought some of his best players from the JSU program over to Colorado with him, including his son Shedeur Sanders, as well as Travis Hunter. The latter recently accused Florida State of contacting him in an attempt to recruit him before he hit the transfer portal.
Now, Coach Prime is being accused of pretty much the same thing, with Marshall University head coach Charles Huff having made claims of Sanders reaching out to a transfer player who was already on campus at Marshall.
“He says Deion Sanders contacted a transfer yesterday who is already on campus at Marshall and tried to talk him into coming to Colorado,” Marshall sports columnist Tom Bragg tweed on Wednesday. “Didn’t name the player, who Huff said is staying at MU.”
Another tweet suggests Deion might not have known that the player was already on campus, though.
There’s nothing on who that player might be but Outkick’s Grayson Weir has compiled a list of the nine incoming Marshall transfers which could be seen below.
- Colin Parachek — Quarterback from Morehead State
- DeMarcus Harris — Wide Receiver from Kentucky
- Mason Pierce — Wide Receiver from McNeese State
- Luke Soto — Tight End from UTEP
- Travis Geiger — Defensive Lineman from Coastal Carolina
- KeSean Brown — Linebacker from Appalachian State
- Tah Mac Bright — Linebacker from Incarnate Word
- J.J. Roberts — Defensive Back from Wake Forest
- Dominic Konopka — Long Snapper from Bowling Green
It could be any one of the nine players named above. There might be more on this in the coming days but it might not be as serious as Huff suggests as he didn’t actually say the player was enrolled at Marshall.
