Four-star WR talks UA camp
It's no secret that Alabama has been heavily pursuing four-star wide receiver Vincent Sanders and while the Macon (MS) Noxubee County star says he plans to take the recruiting process slow, it's clear the Crimson Tide are continuing to try and land a commitment from the 6-foot-3, 182-pound athlete.
This week, Sanders was on campus in Tuscaloosa for UA's 7-on-7 tournament and while Sanders and his Noxubee County teammates didn't win it all, Sanders said he was pleased overall with the experience.
"We did pretty good considering how tough our division was," Sanders said. "We finished 3-1 but I feel like we made some really good plays out there and got to showcase our abilities a little."
Sanders, who also holds offers from Arkansas, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Southern Miss and Tennessee, said that while the event was a good experience for him and reaffirmed many things he already liked about Alabama, he still plans on taking his time with the recruiting process.
"I think the visit helped Alabama overall, at least a little. It was good to see certain things in person that I had only heard about or seen pictures of and it gave me a little better idea of what it would be like to be a player there. I'm not ready to call anyone my leader but Alabama is definitely up there among the top schools for me."
As for his fall plans, Sanders says he remains undecided about when and where he'll take his visits but will start making decisions when school starts back.
"There's so much I still haven't made up my mind about. I really want to learn more about all these schools before I decide who gets a visit so once I do that, I'll know more about my schedule this fall."
As a junior, Sanders pulled double-duty as quarterback and receiver for Noxubee county recording 300 yards and 4 touchdowns receiving along with 500 yards and 10 touchdowns passing. He also hauled in 7 interceptions on defense.
