Shilo Sanders, son of Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders, has received an offer from Florida State, according to ESPN's Tom VanHaaren.

If he accepts, the 2019 Trinity Christian High School graduate will be following in his father's footsteps. The elder Sanders was a cornerback for the Seminoles from 1985-1988.

Deion had 14 interceptions in his four years at Florida State and was also a Consensus All-American in 1987 and 1988. He continues to have strong ties with the school and delivered the scholarship offer to his son.

"He's an FSU O.G., so he found out first," Shilo told VanHaaren. "He was talking to Coach (David) Kelly and they got off the phone and he told me I had the offer. He told me, it was just like, 'You have to work now. You really have to focus on what you're supposed to do because people are going to be coming after you 100 percent.'"

Shilo is yet to commit and is considering his options.

"If I choose to take that route, and follow in my dad's footsteps, then that's excellent," Shilo said. "But, I'm definitely interested in doing my own thing, too, so both could be gratifying. No matter where I go, I'm going to have the same target on my back, so it's just finding what's best for me."

Regardless, Deion remains proud of his son.
