Shedeur Sanders Pledges to FAU - Forsaking Multiple P5 Offers

Florida Atlantic football has landed one of, if not the biggest, verbal commitments in program history.

Trinity Christian-Cedar Hill High School star Quarterback Shedeur Sanders has shocked the college football world by choosing the Owls despite multiple "Power 5" offers - with the decision ultimately coming down to FAU and Louisville, with some late interest from Alabama.

Like his father, NFL Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders, Shedeur has become a human highlight reel throughout his high school playing career. The Class of 2021 star has thrown for 8,796 yards and 123 touchdowns, with just 19 interceptions since starting as a true freshman.
