Deion’s next big play will be to secure a television or streaming rights deal like a baby-Notre Dame. You can’t maximize branding if nobody sees you play.Not just current FR and SO. It potentially has some effects at the HS level. Note the two flips that Jackson State HC "Neon" Deion "Prime Time" Sanders was able to swing: the consensus #1 player in the country - CB Travis Hunter, and the #4 WR - Kevin Coleman. Both were verbal commits to Florida State. Hunter flipped on NLI signing day back in December. Coleman flipped during his reveal at the All American Bowl in San Antonio this past weekend.
I'm sure that Sanders, marketing guru that he is, likely whispered into their ears just how much more profitable their branding efforts will be at JU vs. FSU.
