WR Rico Sanders (5-11 185) of Byrnes High School is considering a visit to Columbia this weekend to take in the USC/Georgia football game. USC has offered Sanders and they are on his list. Sanders other offers are from Clemson, Georgia, Florida, Florida State, Auburn, and Maryland.
He says his top four are USC, Florida, FSU, and Auburn but that he is keeping an open mind about each school that has offered. "I really want to consider every school right now. I don't have any favorites."
Sanders says that the graduation rates of football players and the depth chart at wide receiver are his two most important factors in deciding on a school. He does not, however, consider early playing time an issue. "I know I'm going to do what I do so I'm not really worried about that (redshirting)." He indicated that if he were to redshirt, it would be because he was not ready to play.
He has not scheduled any of his official visits and says he will wait for the right time. Sanders runs a 4.4 40.
