The average college student is crammed into a small dorm room that’s just big enough to not be called a hostel, but Deion Sanders Jr. would know nothing about it. The son of Cowboys’ great Deion Sanders is living the college life in style with a set of gold Versace sheets in his dorm room.
The highly touted two-star recruit from Flower Mound, Texas has big shoes to fill when he suits up for Southern Methodist University this year and he surely will be comfortable no matter how his first season pans out. Versace sheets are a rarity and most never knew they existed until now.
Sanders Jr. was a quarterback in high school and made the majority of his plays with his feet. Just like his father, he features a quickness that can cause trouble for defenses though he only ran a 4.60-forty at best during recruiting workouts.
The 5-foot-8 freshman at SMU has also displayed his ability to change directions and make defenders miss with ease. He will now try and prove himself in his father’s footsteps and it seems like he’s adjusting well to his new home.
Gold Versace sheets are fit for a king, but in this case a recent high school graduate trying to make his own mark on the game of football. Sanders Jr. may not receive much playing time in his first season with the Mustangs but it surely shouldn’t affect his sleeping at night.
Here’s a photo of him laying in his gold Versace sheets that his Hall of Fame father posted on Twitter.

The Sanders’ family may not show their appreciation for the finer things in life, but that didn’t stop Jr. from adding some flair to his dorm room. He now has the tall task of living up to his last name and the gold sheets aren’t going to help him make plays on the field.
Sanders Jr. will more than likely play as a slot receiver at SMU but has also been rumored to train as a defensive back with the team. During his senior year of high school, he ran option looks from the quarterback position or was spread out as a receiver while playing cornerback on defense.
Here’s highlights of Deion Sanders Jr. from his high school days. Will his skill-set transfer over to the college game and eventually land him a job in the NFL?
