OutKick's Zach Dean shared his judgement on Colorado football safety Shilo Sanders' portrayal of his father, Deion Sanders, in the Starz show BMF -- and his review mixed with a sprinkle of sardonic sarcasm.

"If I had told you like, two years ago, that in 2024 we'd be watching Colorado head coach Deion Sanders' son, Buffs safety Shilo Sanders, playing a young Prime in a strip club on some weirdo Starz drama, what would you have said? Probably something like, ‘Zach, college kids can’t do that! They can't get paid for their Name, Image and Likeness!' To which I'd say, ‘Oh, buddy, you just wait!’ Honestly, though, it's not an awful acting job here by young Shilo," Dean prefaced before saying, "I mean, Deion is his dad, so I would assume he'd be good at portraying him, but still … I've certainly seen worse."

Shilo has had a busy year, walking the runway with his brother Shedeur at the Louis Vuitton fall-winter show in Paris headlined by Pharrell Williams in January and going viral in a video in the Buffs locker room where he was seen boxing with Ryan Garcia; who had just handed Devin Haney his first loss in a boxing ring.

Shilo won't be as busy on the field this Fall, though, given his shoulder injury.

Shilo Sanders likely to miss portion of 2024 Colorado football season due to injury

There are mixed reports about whether or not Shilo will miss time due to shoulder surgery that took place in April. Shilo was in a brace at the Black and Gold spring game and didn't play, and the surgery was reportedly a major clean-up job.

BuffsBeat's Josh Tolle reported a six-month timetable for a return, which would eliminate most of the 2024 season for Deion's middle son. Shilo himself says he'll be healthy by the start of the season, which would be a medical miracle.

It was surprising to see Shilo throw the kind of punches he did in the Garcia video, but playing at the Power conference level is a different beast entirely. While Sanders may be trying to protect his draft stock, he'll eventually have to answer for his absences.
