Deion Sanders flips five-star recruit, top-ranked cornerback chooses Colorado over Miami

Jan 20, 2023

When Deion Sanders left Jackson State University for his first FBS coaching job in December, the Colorado Buffaloes instantly became a destination for top recruits.

One year ago, Sanders convinced the No. 1 recruit in the country – Travis Hunter – to play for Jackson State instead of Florida State.

On Thursday, "Prime Time" once again got a top recruit to flip from a Florida school in favor of playing for him.

Cormani McClain, the No. 1 cornerback in the 2023 class, chose the Buffaloes over the Miami Hurricanes, becoming the first five-star recruit for Sanders as head coach at Colorado.

"I play DB and Coach Prime is the best DB. I wanna be in the same shoes, same predicament, gold jacket, everything," McClain told 247Sports. "Get coached by the best DB. Why not?"
