However, AAU ball with Belmont Shore has changed that a bit and Sandifer has seen his recruitment pick up as of late.
The 6-foot-4, 175-pound guard has gotten off to a decent start this spring, but says that he wants to keep improving in numerous areas.
"I think I have played well so far," Sandifer said. "I could do better on defense and communicate with my teammates a little bit more.
"My biggest goal is to show everybody what I can do and work. I feel I can score the ball, shoot, get to the basket on the break, and get my teammates in the mix."
It is those abilities that have led double-digit schools to inquire about Sandifer, although he has yet to receive an offer.
"I have gotten letters or some type of contact from about 15 schools," he said. "I am waiting for my first offer and I am not really sure who the first will be, but I am glad I have a lot of schools talking to me right now." Although Sandifer is extremely early in his recruitment, he says that there are three schools he has more interest in than others.
Sandifer has no intentions of making a quick decision and believes that he will wait in order to maximize all of his options.
"I see myself as the type of player that will probably get out and take some official visits and look at different schools," he said.
