Deion Sanders explains why Daylen Baldwin left Jackson State for Michigan
Deion Sanders revealed some details of the reasons why Daylen Baldwin transferred to Michigan before last season.
The Jackson State coach offered his perspective on the transfer a few weeks after Baldwin ended his college career, and declared for the NFL Draft. The 6-foot-2, 219-pound Baldwin split his college career at Morgan State, Jackson State, and Michigan.
Baldwin, a Southfield, Michigan native, made 17 catches for 256 yards and 2 touchdowns this season at Michigan. For his career, Baldwin tallied 56 receptions, 928 yards, and 10 touchdowns. At Michigan, he appeared in 14 games with 5 starts at wide receiver for the Wolverines.
At Jackson State and Morgan State, Baldwin appeared in 28 career games (22 at Morgan State, 6 at Jackson State). He made a total of 57 receptions for 873 yards with 9 touchdowns in his career. Sanders was a guest on the No. 1 Ranked Show with R.J. Young.
“Daylen told us after the spring that he wanted to turn pro after the fall season,” Sanders said on the No. 1 Ranked Show with R.J. Young. “We said cool. So business wise, we cut his full scholarship to half because he didn’t need a full because he wasn’t going to be there past December. He didn’t understand the logic of that and got sensitive.”
