“Calling All Dogs we want to see you Live baby! This is my 1st college camp with @gojsutigersfb and i expect the best talent from ALL OVER! This is a satellite camp and their will be many schools on hand that could offer u a scholarship on the spot, I know I am if u got it. More details will come but this is 1 that you and your parents better not procrastinate about. All HBCU’s YOU ARE PERSONALLY INVITED FROM ME! #CoachPrime All Local Businesses let’s pull together on this 1 and do what hadn’t been done. Let’s give all these visitors a true Jackson Mississippi Experience of professionalism & Hospitality.”
The camp, long made popular by college coaches, will be held June 19. The event is open to SEC and Ohio Valley Conference coaches in addition to the SWAC, MEAC and CIAA coaches.
The news comes hours after Sanders lamented on social media that no HBCU football players were selected during the 2021 NFL Draft.
It was the first time since 2009 that no player representing an HBCU was drafted.
“I witnessed a multitude of kids that we played against that were more than qualified to be drafted,” he said. “My prayers are that This won’t EVER happen again.”
