Deion Sanders' Son Pumps Brakes on Florida State, Not a Done Deal
Deion Sanders' Son Pumps Brakes on Florida State ... Not a Done Deal

Don't start the tomahawk chop just yet ... Deion Sanders' football star son tells TMZ Sports he's flattered by his scholarship offer to Florida State -- but he's not ready to commit.
It's not a diss -- Shilo Sanders says he just doesn't want to rush into a decision since he's still got some time to weigh his options ... and he's got PLENTY of options.
Major programs including Oregon, Nebraska, Georgia and South Carolina have been after Shilo and for good reason ... he's a STUD senior cornerback at Trinity Christian School in Texas.
But, Shilo's dad is arguably the greatest player to ever don a 'Noles uniform -- which can cut both ways when making a college decision.
On one hand, it would be cool to follow in Dad's shoes. On the other hand, it might be better for Shilo to forge his own legacy somewhere else.
Shilo tells us he's been hearing both arguments and simply wants to give it more thought.
"I'm not saying [FSU] won't be the right fit, I'm just saying I'm not making the decision right now."
What's cool ... Shilo says he credits his football skills to his father, who's been teaching him the Jedi ways of the cornerback position.
In fact, Shilo -- one of Deion's three sons -- says it was Prime's idea to move him from quarterback to cornerback a few years ago and it was the best thing he's ever done.
"He was like, 'Just believe me, just trust me, and I'm going to get you some offers,'" Shilo tells us.
"'I'ma teach you how to play corner.' And, when the best corner ever tells you something like that, you can't deny it."
