Last year, Deion Sanders foreshadowed his daughter’s potential arrival at JSU saying, “she (Shelomi) plans on hooping here as well.”

Sanders’ sons, Shilo and Shedeur, are both current members of the football team and helped the Tigers win the program’s first SWAC championship since 2008 this past fall.
