Deion Sanders, of course, is affectionately nicknamed "Prime Time," but Coach Prime gave blockbuster 2024 Colorado football signing Jordan Seaton a similar nickname just before his commitment was made official on December 22: "Big Time."

“The big fella, man. I call him Big Time. That’s his new nickname,” Coach Prime said to Stephan A. Smith during a recorded interview (h/t BuffZone). “He knows how to articulate himself. He knows what he wants, but he’s willing to work to go get it and he challenges guys all day long. He would get on the phone and call another lineman, ‘Hey man, you coming or not, because we ain’t got time for that. What you gonna do?’

“This kid practices his butt off; that’s what we glean. But he’s a man, man. I mean he comes from tough beginnings. … This kid is a pro, mentally and physically right now. He just has to put it on grass. I love everything about this kid and who he is gonna become. I promise you this kid is gonna be first rounder, if not the top five pick.”

What Colorado football commit Jordan Seaton said about Coach Prime, Shedeur Sanders

Seaton went on FS1's Undisputed with Skip Bayless, Stephen A.'s former long-time First Take co-host, and Michael Irvin to unofficially commit to Colorado -- and the IMG Academy product had strong words of support for Coach Prime and his star quarterback son, Shedeur Sanders.

“You gotta believe in Coach Prime,” Seaton said. “Having the opportunity to play with somebody who has done it at the highest level, gold jacket level, very few can say they did that. I’ve got two Heisman Trophy candidates – Shedeur Sanders and Travis Hunter. They’re amazing. You know how they go.”

Regarding Shedeur, the most sacked QB in college football, Seaton said that the youngest Sanders son would "never" deal with that again.

After turning down larger NIL offers and even looking like a potential de-commitment, Seaton is now officially a Buff, and he's playing for and with men he greatly respects.

Sounds like a recipe for success at CU.
