Georgia may be in the process of becoming a hotbed for the sons of legendary sports figures. During Saturday’s G-Day game, Florida legend Emmitt Smith was seen on the sidelines sporting Bulldogs gear.
It wasn’t intended to be a slap in the face to Gators fans. Smith’s son, EJ Smith, was taking a visit to check out the game. The 4-star prospect is currently the No. 2 all-purpose back in the country, so virtually every school in the country is courting the Smith family in hopes of landing his services.
Apparently, the Smith family wasn’t the only star-studded group that was in attendance for the game. The sons of Hall of Fame defensive back Deion Sanders were there as well.

Shilo Sanders is the oldest of the two. He’s currently a 3-star cornerback that is part of the 2019 class, according to 247Sports. He doesn’t have an offer from the Bulldogs yet. With that said, he does have several options with teams such as Nebraska, Oregon, UCF and others already trying to bring him in.
Shedeur Sanders is the younger of the two. The 6-0, 175-pound dual-threat quarterback will be a part of the 2021 class.
The Bulldogs already having former star boxer Evander Holyfield’s son, Elijah, on the roster. Throw in the sons of Smith and Sanders, and this Georgia roster could have the most impressive bloodlines of any team in the country.
