Deion Sanders is revealing the class rules for his second full-season Jackson State Tigers’ squad.
In a YouTube video, Coach Prime told his players that he wants them to dress nicer during classes and become better role models in the classroom.
“No slides (sandals). No slides. No armpits exposed. No wife-beaters,” Sanders says to his team. “Sit in the front of the classroom and be the perfect gentleman because when it comes down to it, and you need help, that professor is going to recall your character and who you’ve been consistently in that class… No slides, no sleeveless shirts, no armpits, none of that.”
He added on Instagram: “I want Professionals in life not just Professional football players. Class etiquette is key, home, locker room and life period. Always strive to give and be your best.”

Sanders added that he wants his players to shower before class.
“Make sure you shower before you go to class,” Sanders continued. “I don’t want to get a report that you was in some bull-junk in our apparel, representing us. Kids in the back of class making noise, he’s free-styling to the whole class while I was trying to teach it with a Jackson State football shirt on. Not going to happen.
“When it gets back to me … it’s going to be a problem.”
Jackson State went 11-2 last season and are ranked No. 15 in the country heading into 2022.
