Clemson verbal commitment Matt Sanders is having an outstanding senior season for Crestview High School in Crestview, Fla.

"It is going pretty good," he said. "We are 2-1 so far. We had our rival game rained out because of a tropical storm. We got a big rival game next week. That is our first district game. Our team has gotten a lot better."

Sanders also said is learning a new position this year.

"I am trying to adapt to it right now," he said. "I started out the year playing guard. As the season progressed they needed me to move over to center to help the team. I am learning the new position. It takes more quickness at center. I think I have adjusted well," said Sanders.

"I think it will help to be versatile. I will not just be a one dimensional player. Coach Scott can use me where it will help the team the most."

A return trip to Death Valley is planned for next weekend.

"I went to the Florida State game. I am planning to come to the Virginia Tech game next week. I will be coming up with my mom, dad and my little sister. I will also try to make it up to at least one more game later in the year," said Sanders.

"They are looking great. To me Clemson is all new. I didn't grow up a Clemson fan. I am getting use to the traditions. I think they are awesome. I have been to a lot of SEC teams and been all over. I am telling you there is no place like Clemson on game day. It totally amazes me."

The play of the offensive line has also caught his eye.

"They look to me like one of the best offensive line units in the country. I am trying to figure out how I am going to be able to play when I get up to Clemson," said the top lineman.

Sanders is working hard to get another top lineman to join him at Clemson.

"I met with R.J. Mattes before the game. I am trying to talk him into joining me up there. Coach Scott is real high on him," said Sanders.
