Deion Sanders has been mentoring current NFL players, and rookies coming into the league, for awhile now. The only difference is that now it will be televised. "Prime U" will be an hour long program that features Sanders teaching five prospects the ways of the league. Via the NFL-N....
Five prospects, one dream. “Under Armour Presents Prime U” debuts at 8 p.m. Five prospects, one dream. On Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. ET, Under Armour Presents Prime U debuts on NFL Network, chronicling the journey of NFL hopefuls training under the tutelage of NFL Network analyst and eight-time Pro Bowler Deion Sanders.That actually sounds pretty interesting. Sanders' "Camp" was actually founded last year, and even succeeded in helping Pacman Jones back into the league. As far as this year's collection of players on the show, here's who I've gathered will be featured: Darius Butler (Connecticut), Emmanuel Cook (South Carolina), Lendy Holmes (Oklahoma), Captain Munnerlyn (South Carolina), and Lydell Sargeant (Penn State)
Produced by NFL Films, the 60-minute Under Armour Presents Prime U goes inside Sanders’ training camp in Irving, TX for a look at how the legendary cornerback imparts his knowledge of the game and life as a professional football player to the next generation.
"Prime U isn't the normal training process that you get from a standard training facility," said Sanders. "It's not just about training physically, but also developing a healthy spiritual and psychological makeup. From family to finances, Prime U works to ensure that these young men have all the tools in place for a successful life and career in the NFL and beyond."
