Recruitment Rundown: The Sanders Effect

When Cormani McClain didn’t sign with Miami during the early signing phase, the news outlet couldn’t stop buzzing about where the consensus 5-star recruit was.

There was still a chance McClain could stick with his original commitment or stay in his home state of Florida and select the Florida Gators’ flagship institution.

But as days went by, the two most likely schools became Alabama, home of college football’s most famous program, and Colorado, where Deion Sanders took over the program after a successful tenure at Jackson State.
