Deion Sanders, Colorado go back to Florida State to secure another major transfer target
Deion Sanders continued his offseason raid of the Florida State Seminoles on Monday by securing a transfer commitment from defensive back Omarion Cooper.
Cooper is a 6-foot, 188-pound cornerback from Lehigh Acres, Florida. He appeared in 12 games last fall for the Seminoles and played in eight games as a true freshman in 2021 — a starter at various points throughout. Cooper will have three years to play two for the Buffs.

Sanders, a Florida State alum himself, has now secured three transfer commitments from former Seminoles this offseason — all on the defensive side of the ball. Cooper will join linebacker Brendan Gant and edge defender Derrick McLendon II in Boulder.
And Cooper only just recently entered the portal. He announced he was leaving FSU last Thursday. A former 4-star recruit, Cooper totaled 30 tackles, seven pass breakups, three interceptions, and a forced fumble across 20 appearances and seven starts for the Seminoles.
The Buffs’ new coaching staff has quickly remade the corner group at Colorado. Cooper will join fellow newcomers Travis Hunter, Cormani McClain, and Jahquez Robinson. Hunter and McClain were 5-star recruits out of high school. Robinson was a 4-star who began his career at Alabama.
