Keveon Mullins, a 6-foot-3, 242-pound tight end, who entered the NCAA Transfer Portal last month, announced that he's transferring to Jackson State.
Keveon Mullins aka Key Mullins a native of Memphis, Tennessee, was a four-star prospect out of the class of 2019, according to the 247Sports Composite. He was the No. 9 player out of Tennessee and the No. 18 athlete in the class.
Keveon Mullins appeared in six games over the course of his three-year career at South Carolina. At Jackson State, Keveon Mullins will be reunited with former Gamecocks defensive back Shilo Sanders, Deion Sanders son who also transferred to Jackson State.
Keveon Mullins made the Big announcement via a graphic shared to social media, which he posted with the caption “New Beginning..”
Deion Sanders aka Coach Prime continues to fine tune his Jackson State machine with Keveon Mullins and his recent acquisition of Travis Hunter, the No. 1 player in the class of 2022, .
"I don't look two or three years from now, I take care of the present because if I don't, I'm going to miss the moment,"
Coach Prime got Travis Hunter to commit from Florida State early in the signing period, "I don't look two or three years from now, I take care of the present because if I don't, I'm going to miss the moment," Sanders said earlier this month on. We recruited up at every position we needed to recruit up. We had some guys that weren't eligible last year that were better than the guys on the field this past season.
After winning the SWAC's top coaching honor Deion Sanders recently said he is focused on the "now" at Jackson State. "The goal is to dominate where you are, not win, but to dominate where you are," Sanders said. " The best is yet to come.
It is certainly a confirmation and a testament to the winning spirit, enthusiasm and professionalism that Coach Prime has brought to the table that Keveon Mullins and some of the top players in the country are all heading to Jackson State.
