The 6-foot-3, 185-pound signal caller said there are a lot of things about his game that coaches like.
"Coaches like how I can improvise," he said.
"I have a pretty strong arm, and my feet are pretty good too, so they like all of that. I pretty much know where to go with the ball most of the time so they like that, and they like my speed."
The Blue Devils were the first pull the trigger and extend Zanders an offer and he likes the Duke program early.
"The head coach and quarterbacks coach both work with both of the Manning brothers. They're definitely at the top of my list right now, they are know for making quarterbacks," he said.
"Academically, they're pretty prestigious. They have a great environment. The basketball team is always good so that attracts a lot of attention. I'm going up there for junior day March 2nd. They play Miami in basketball so that should be a pretty fun experience. It's definitely a place where I could see myself going."
The Raines (Jacksonville, FL) standout looks forward to visiting Duke again this weekend. He isn't quite sure when he'll make a decision, but there are plenty of factors involved.
"(I'm looking for) offensively, if they fit my skill set. I'm looking for a team that's going to spread it out and use the quarterback, his legs and arm, to the full potential. Also a place with good academics so even if football doesn't work out I could have that degree." he said.
"I also want to get away from Florida. I'd like to just get away and experience some new things."
Zanders plans to sharpen his skills during the offseason. He's running track at school and looking forward to spring when the coaches will be watching. Stay tuned to FOX Sports NEXT for the latest on his recruitment.
