Florida Atlantic added a big name to its 2021 recruiting class Monday when ESPN 300 quarterback Shedeur Sanders announced his commitment to the Owls.

Sanders, the son of NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, is the No. 8-ranked pocket-passer QB and the No. 41-ranked prospect overall in the class.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound quarterback out of Trinity Christian School in Cedar Hill, Texas, is the first ESPN 300 recruit to choose FAU since ESPN started its rankings in 2009.
