Former Colorado Commit Reveals Deion Sanders Pulled Offer

Deion Sanders' inaugural squad with the Colorado Buffaloes is taking shape, but will include one less player than anticipated. 

Carson Mott, a three-star recruit from Simi Valley, California, took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce Colorado would not honor its commitment. 

"Just spoke to the new Colorado staff and was informed they would not be honoring my commitment," Mott said. "I am officially re-opening my recruitment." Mott then tagged a variety of media outlets involved in recruiting and college football developments. 

Mott was a sought-after recruit, and will assuredly receive consideration now that he's back on the open market. An edge rusher who stands 6'5'', Mott made an impression when participating in the All American Bowl National Combine earlier this year. 

According to 247Sports, Mott's commitment to Colorado came on June 13 of this year. Obviously, the landscape of Colorado football was considerably different at this time, as Deion Sanders had not yet been hired as the program's new head coach. What impact Sanders' hiring had on Mott's revoked commitment- if any- has yet to be disclosed. 

Prior to his commitment to Colorado, Mott had received offers from Fresno State, UNLV, Nevada, and many other programs.
