Sanders is rated a 4-star prospect boasting offers from programs like Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Louisville, Tennessee and more, but ultimately chose Florida Atlantic University.
The 6-foot-2 pro-style quarterback plays for Trinity Christian School in Cedar Hill, Texas. He’s ranked as the nation’s No. 14 pro style quarterback and the state’s No. 34 overall prospect in the 2021 recruiting class according to a 247Sports composite.
Last season, Sanders threw for nearly 3,500 yards and 47 touchdowns. In three seasons, he’s thrown for 8,796 yards and 123 touchdowns with only 19 interceptions.
Last month, Sanders posted a photo to Instagram showing just how he was spending the pandemic as well as the summer polishing his skill… being trained by none other than six-time Super Bowl champion and NFL quarterbacking legend Tom Brady:
