Deion Sanders continues to recruit talent to his Jackson State program. This week he's landed former Alabama, 5-foot-11, 160-pound WR Joshua Lanier...
“I knew it had to be a bigger move than just me,” Lanier said, according to the Tuscaloosa News. “It had to be more about family, had to be more about God. It had to be more about a program that I could mean something to and that can give a good message to people that look up to me.”
“It just gives me a good chance to first (stay) closer to home, which is good for my family,” Lanier said, “and it also gives me a way to show younger kids just because you’ve got other, bigger offers don’t mean that you have to go there. You can go to an HBCU. And hopefully once I go there and I can further my career to the NFL they can know that you can still go to an HBCU and go to the NFL.”
