Colorado got a huge win on the recruiting trail Thursday evening.
The program was able to flip five-star cornerback Cormani McClain, who is the top cornerback recruit in the country. This comes after McClain originally committed to Miami in October.
Deion Sanders, the program’s new head coach, was fired after receiving the news.
“Today is a good day, baby,” Sanders shouted in a video posted to his Twitter.
This is the second year in a row that Sanders has turned in the top rated cornerback recruit in the country. Last year, it was Travis Hunter while he was the head coach at Jackson State.
In addition to being the top rated cornerback recruit in the nation for 2023, he is the third best player in his home state (Florida) and the No. 12 recruit overall in the nation, Per 247Sports Overall Ranking,
It’s only been a little over a month now but Sanders is already showing he’s a great fit in Colorado.
