When asked about the decision, Sanders said, "I'm committed to FSU." This confirms what we said on Thursday where we heard that he had made the decision then. The great visit officially sealed the deal for Sanders, adding another important piece to the 2008 recruiting class for the Noles.
Sanders, who has the frame Coach Trickett looks for in his linemen, is potential future star for the Noles. He is quick off the ball, has excellent feet and is pretty athletic for a player his size. He has the ability to get off his initial block and into the second level, which will help a stagnant FSU running game. At this stage Zebrie is an excellent lineman who is versatile in both run and pass blocking.
Zebrie's recruitment became national news when he came close to committing to the Florida Gators. Before he could officially pull the trigger he was told by the coaches there was no room left. Soon after that, his other favorite (Georgia) pulled out too. For Florida State this opened the door for them to land a prospect that thought were high on. After clearing up the cheating scandal, it was a done deal.
Sanders addition to the offensive line class gives the Noles 3 of the top lineman in the country that fit Trickett's style. Look for NoleDigest to have an in-depth interview with Sanders as he was boarding a plane when we spoke to him.
** Sander's commitment adds to an offensive line that looks to be one of the best hauls on Signing Day. NoleDigest is hearing great things about Josh Jenkins, so it looks like the Seminoles may close with two of the top lineman in the country. After this class, the offensive line will no longer be a concern.
