Why Everyone Is Talking About FAU's New Football Team Roster


Welp, it's official quarter back Shedeur Sanders and Cam'Ron Silmon have officially committed to Florida Atlantic University. FAU's football team is led by head coach Willie Taggart Jr.

Sanders is son to NFL football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders. Sanders "is the No. 8-ranked pocket-passer QB and the No. 41-ranked prospect overall in the class.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound quarterback out of Trinity Christian School in Cedar Hill, Texas, is the first ESPN 300 recruit to choose FAU since ESPN started its rankings in 2009.

"I wanted to write my own legacy, FAU gave me a opportunity to do that! I trust the staff," Shedeur Sanders told ESPN's Gerry Hamilton in a text message. "[Owls coach] Willie Taggart was the first coach to offer me a opportunity to play at the next level." - espn.com
