Deion Sanders Jr. apparently has inherited more of his father's playfulness than his game.

That's right. The prospect that sports a Hall of Fame name but average game used National Signing Day as a chance to build a little drama and mystery about his collegiate future. 

Not that many college fans were exactly on the edge of their seat about this. The 5'7", 170-pound corner is listed by Rivals as a 2-star prospect that has generated little interest from colleges. 

In fact, they list only California, Houston, Wake Forest and North Texas as being interested, and only Houston as having offered him a scholarship. 

Believe that statement at your own peril, however, as Prime Time Jr. refutes it.

So just how many more offers, I wonder?

Wow, thanks Deion! 

Number of offers aside, whichever school he picks is going to have to wait for his services.

Papa Sanders is fully on board with his son's decision. 

Sanders Jr. has a couple of things going against him on the football field. The first is his lack of height, the second is his lack of speed. Rivals lists his first time as 4.5. 

That is just barely faster than what popular rumor says his father could post running the 40 backward. 

Despite his lack of game-changing skills, the news that Deion is going to a Division 1 school is going to be a big blow to at least one school.

I can't seem to find any scouting reports on his Quidditch skills, but surely they are amazing. This is also going to crush the hearts of many sorcerer-loving fans, including Bleacher Report's resident Potter head, Kyle "Goose" Vassalo.

Don't worry, Goose. I'm sure Hogwarts will still put together a nice recruiting class. They always do.
