"Georgia has been coming by, and I think it was just a matter of time before they came through with an offer," he said Monday after committing. "This was a process of waiting. I was waiting for it, and that was pretty tough. But I was going to have to continue to do what I had to do."
That meant sticking out until nearly Singing Day to pick the Bulldogs. Sanders, a three-star defensive back from Tucker, said he had built a great relationship with new Georgia defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.
"One of the big reasons was Coach Pruitt," Sanders said. "And the relationship we have, and his personality. I remember that since he was at FSU. He told me that (Georgia) loved me, and that (my offer) was coming. I think that when he got there it happened."
Sanders had been committed to UCF until Monday, and said Sunday that there was a "50/50 chance" that he would officially visit Athens coming weekend. That visit could still happen, but this time with Sanders being committed to Georgia.
