Sanders picks Rutgers

Corey Sanders committed to Rutgers on Thursday, according to his AAU coach.

Eddie Jordan and Rutgers picked up their point guard of the future on Thursday.

Corey Sanders, a four-star prospect out of Florida, pledged to Jordan and his staff on Thursday, according to Showtime Ballers coach Diana Neal.

"They were the only school that offered and recruited him the hardest," Neal told Scout.com. "[They were] more like family to him. He also will play right away because they need a point guard."

"He looked at where he could be a pro as well and felt Eddie Jordan can help him follow his dream," Neal added. "They have really been great and have showed they need him more than just want him. He loved the school as well."

According to Neal, Sanders picked the Scarlet Knights over strong interest from Tennessee, UCF, USF and DePaul.

At 6-foot-2, 175-pounds, Sanders is a quick and athletic guard. Sanders is at best with the ball in his hands, but is more of a scoring lead guard than a true set up guy. Sanders is a talented scorer that can put up points in a hurry.

Sanders is regarded as the No. 15 point guard and the No. 90 overall player in the 2015 class.
