Deion Sanders sounds serious about HBCU camp

“Prime Time” has had HBCUs on his mind this week.

ATLANTA–This weekend Deion Sanders had Twitter buzzing when he suggested that he wanted to host a free camp for defensive backs who attended HBCUs. There was no shortage of responses for locations and willing participants.

Expanding the vision

Prime Time doubled down on his idea Tuesday suggesting his free camp would be open to DBs, wide receivers and quarterbacks. He was also actively soliciting locations that could accommodate the most participants possible.  Once again his mentions were full of suggestions.

The NFL Hall of Famer seems serious about making a contribution to HBCUs with his time and talents. Will it happen and if so where? Let us know what you think.

    Hampton U. Would be a prime location or Norfolk State. Easy access by plane or driving. Plenty of places to stay, near the beaches of Hampton Roads and the home of plenty NFL talent.

    PVAMU, Texas is the State to host it Prime Time and Prairie View has new facilities and a new Prime Time President who ,like you, comes from the big leagues. Her goal is like your goal – to make a big league statement within student athletes with big potential. Mr. Sanders, I pray you holler at the President at PV.

    There are only two choices when it comes to best location. The first thought when it comes to centralization you look at Alabama State and Tennessee State. Then you look at facilities, Tennessee state has an indoor facility (now the time of the year that this could be held gives them a big advantage.) Both universities have the outdoor facilities to handle such a camp but Alabama State’s are better-looking. Now you would have to handle about 80 to 100 student-athletes and that’s according to if you are working with incoming freshman and or outgoing seniors trying to get to the league. When including quarterbacks and receivers you looking at another hundred in 25 athletes . Now you have to ask where will they stay . It is my opinion that you would have to go with Tennessee State, bigger city.
