Corey Sanders Profile

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound outside linebacker committed to the Black Knights on June 7th, 2014.

"I took a tour of West Point a couple of years ago and it's been a dream school for me. I'm happy for the opportunity they're presenting me. I've always had a strong desire to serve in the Army and West Point offers the best platform in the nation to do that."

Corey Sanders has other offers from Air Force, Lamar, and Texas State.

"The (Army) offer was at outside linebacker. Coach (Jovan) DeWitt said he was clearly impressed with my length and speed. He said that's the combination they look for in their outside linebackers. He also like the relentless level at which I play."

In Sanders senior season, he broke his arm in the forth game and was able to come back for the last game of the regular season game. He finished the year with 52 tackles, four quarterback hurries, one sack, and one interception. In his junior season, his first as a starter, Sanders was named second-team All-State in Texas Class 5A. He is the son of Nancy and Joe Don Sanders, and has two sisters, Kylee and Kyndel.
