Two Major Offers for Ohio Lineman

The "Buckeye State" will have a number of big time offensive linemen in the 2008 class. Northmont's Zebrie Sanders will be one of the very best technique tackles in the country, and he has already added two major scholarship offers.

Zebrie Sanders, a 6-foot-6, 260-pound offensive lineman from Northmont High in Clayton blocks for one of the most prolific passing offenses in Southwest Ohio.

"My biggest strengths are probably my pass pro skills and my quickness," Sanders acknowledged as he broke down why the offense has made him a stronger player. "I have pretty quick feet and I just want to do whatever it takes to protect my quarterback."

Two major programs have already taken notice of his talents by stepping up with early scholarship offers.

"Recruiting is going good," Sanders began. "I have got two offers from Miami (FL) and Georgia. Clemson has also told me that they will have an offer for me around signing day."

"Miami offered me during the season, and Georgia offered me while I was down there on an unofficial visit. I was down there and the head coach (Mark Richt) and the offensive line coach (Neil Callaway) offered me. I had a good time and it was a really nice atmosphere."

Sanders also had the opportunity to go to Columbus last weekend to watch a session of the Buckeye's bowl game practice. Ohio State is another school that has grabbed his early attention.

"It was a great experience," Sanders said of the time he spent on campus. "It felt great. There was a great vibe. They were serious, but they were also having fun being together."

"They had the practice at the indoor facility. All of the facilities were really nice."

Sanders also reports an early interest in Michigan, Louisville and USC, and he plans to hit the road and visit one of them this summer for camp.

"I am definitely going to be going to Southern Cal for their summer camp," Sanders informed. "My aunt lives in L.A. and she said that I could stay with her while I am there."

Sanders reports that he will also participate in the Army All-American combine in San Antonio this January.

Sanders earned All-Conference and All-Ohio honors after a productive junior season on the field.
