Sanders, who currently is the starting quarterback at Trinity Christian High School where his father is the team’s offensive coordinator, had previously committed to Florida Atlantic.
Sanders referenced the offer in a tweet posted Thursday afternoon.
“Very blessed to receive an offer from Jackson State University,” he wrote.
