UNC To Host Sanders
This weekend, North Carolina hosts big man Damion Grant on his official visit. Next weekend, the Tar Heels will once again be booked up.
Gulfport (MS) Harrison Central standout Byron Sanders will visit North Carolina the weekend of Jan. 12. He feels that UNC has offered him a scholarship and could commit on his visit. "Yes, sir, "Sanders said when asked if he could commit on his visit.
Sanders said his game is maturing more and he's now a legit 6-9. He's averaging 12 points and 11.5 rebounds for his high school team this year. He's got a 3.6 in the classroom and a qualifying score on his ACT.
In the fall, he visited McNeese State and is hearing from Tulane, Southern Illinois and Lipscomb.
Sanders attended the Nike Camp and says UNC has been in touch for a while. "My coach has been talking to them all through last summer and they've been calling my house ever since November."
