The drama surrounding Deion Sanders‘s hire at Colorado continues as we’ve seen some current players and incoming recruits react to the news.

Carson Mott, a three-star edge rusher previously committed to play for the Buffaloes, now says that Sanders pulled his offer off the table after he was hired.

“Just spoke to the new Colorado staff and was informed they would not be honoring my commitment. I am officially re-opening my recruitment.”

Sanders has been heavily criticized for his departure from Jackson State and how he has handled his role as the new coach at Colorado. In his initial speech to his new players, he didn’t pull any punches. He made it clear what he expected and, if they couldn’t live up to his expectations, they were welcome to walk away.

“We got a few positions already taken care of, because I’m bringing my luggage with me — and it’s Louis [Vuitton],” said Sanders. “Okay, it ain’t gonna be no more of the mess that these wonderful fans, the student body, and some of your parents have put up with … for probably two decades now. I’m comin’ and when I get here it’s gonna be changed. So I want y’all to get ready, to go ahead and jump in that portal, and do whatever you’re gonna get, because the more of you jump in, the more room we make, because we’re bringing in kids who are smart, say that, tough.”

Sanders’ position may rub people the wrong way, but he’s made it clear that things will be his way or the highway.
