Deion Sanders Jr.'s Meeting With Lil Wayne Being Investigated By SMU

Posted: Updated:

After documenting his backstage meeting with Lil Wayne, SMU wide receiver Deion Sanders Jr. is reportedly being investigated by his college for any funny business.

Last week, Sanders shared this snap -- of him in an SMU sweatshirt and three teammates backstage with the bathrobe-clad rapper -- with his Twitter followers:

As notes, NCAA rules dictates that players must never use their athletic connections to receive perks. SMU told the Dallas Morning News that it's looking into Sanders' meeting with Lil Weezy to ensure that the young man was not using underhanded means to get backstage.

"We don't expect to find anything amiss, but it's our responsibility to check stuff like this out," SMU official Brad Sutton said.

Of course, as the son of one of pro football's best cornerbacks ever, it might not come as too much of a shock that Sanders is rubbing shoulders with celebs.

In fact, as Dallas Morning News' College Sports Blog points out, Sanders' dad, NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, has said outright that he's a friend of Lil Wayne's.

Still, SMU coach June Jones said the younger Sanders shouldn't forget the potential hazards that come with being the child of a celebrity.

“I talk to him all the time about that. We have had numerous conversations," he told the Morning News.
