Dawgs and Tigers hot after Commings

AUGUSTA – Georgia and Auburn have been trying to keep quiet about what some consider a sleeper prospect.

Sanders Commings, a defensive back and wide receiver prospect from Westside, has been offered by both Auburn and Georgia, but other schools are starting to take note.

"My coach has talked to Florida, who I am taking a visit to on March 24th, and he has talked with Georgia Tech, too," Commings said.

Some may have taken note after Commings pounded Cross Creek for 203 all-purpose yards and five touchdowns in the Patriots' 41-9 win last fall. Still, the prospect is not ready to make the Tigers and Dawgs his leaders just because they offered him before others.

"My interest level is the same with every school right now," he said. "I am looking for what schools have to offer for majors. I want to major in computer science or high school education so that I could coach in high school. I don't think just because Auburn and Georgia offered me early – that is not going to effect my decision. They are both close to Augusta, so I think that's one reason they heard about me. "

The Bulldogs and Tigers would likely use Commings at different spots should they sign him, he said.

"Right now Auburn says defensive back or wide receiver. Georgia is mainly interested in my playing defensive back. I just really want to play somewhere," he admitted.

Many consider cornerback a priority this season for the Bulldogs. That is likely they reason Commings is being recruited for the secondary rather than at receiver, where Georgia already has a commitment from A.J. Green and is hot on the trail of Tavarres King.

For now Auburn and Georgia remain the only schools to extend an offer to Commings. As a result, the Augusta native took a trip to visit both campuses and liked what he saw.

"I like both of them. I can't say that I like one more that he other," he said.

One matter may complicate recruiting matters for Commings – baseball. One of the top baseball prospects in the area, Commings is also plans on making the rounds on the diamond this summer, too.

I will try to go to some camps this summer, but I am going to balance it with baseball. I am going to go to as many as possible.
