The 6-foot-3 combo guard had a handful of high major programs in the mix, but also a number of mid-level programs pressuring him for a decision. On Monday the Lexington (Ky.) Catholic standout made up his mind and went with Georgetown.
"I think coach [John] Thompson and coach [Robert] Burke did a great job recruiting him," Catholic head coach Brandon Salsman said.
Sanford is the second 2009 prospect to commit to Georgetown. Hollis Thompson, who enrolled in December, was the other commitment.
