Panama City (Fla.) Arnold High School class of 2016 quarterback/free safety prospect Cody Saunders looks to be on the radar of several FBS programs this fall. The 6-foot-2 and 190-pound junior is also on the radar of what will be the country’s newest Division II program in the University of West Florida which will begin playing in the Gulf South Conference in 2016. Saunders attended a satellite camp earlier this summer that was hosted jointly by South Florida and West Florida.

"USF, the quarterback coach told me to email him but at the camp I got a lot of exposure with West Florida. It was a satellite camp so there were West Florida coaches there. The West Florida coaches have been contacting me through Twitter and email," Saunders said of the feedback he has gotten from two of Florida’s youngest college football programs.

Saunders has also been from a couple of ACC and SEC programs since this past spring.

"I’ve gotten letters in the mail from FSU, Clemson, USF, Georgia Tech and Georgia for camp invites and athlete information sheets," Saunders said.

The underclassman takes the vast majority of his snaps at quarterback but does line up at safety on defense in crucial situations. Saunders his summer concentrating on becoming a more polished signal-caller.

"Making my reads, making the right throws, basically my mechanics, knowing the coverages and pre-snap reads. And knowing what my teammates have and what they are supposed to do," answered Saunders when asked what areas of his game he focused on improving this summer.
