Promising OT likes Louisville

Remember this name Louisville fans - Zebrie Sanders. An impressive 6-6, 260-pound sophomore from Clayton, Ohio, Sanders is a big time offensive tackle in the making. InsideTheVille.com caught up with Sanders Saturday at the Scout.com combine in Louisville and got his early thoughts on possible college destinations.

Here's a name for Louisville fans to remember: Zebrie Sanders.

A junior-to-be at Northmont High in Clayton, Ohio, Sanders stands an impressive 6-foot-6, 260-pounds. An athletic offensive tackle, Sanders has impressive size, long arms and excellent mobility and agility. In short, he's the proto-typical offensive tackle in a pass-oriented offense.

There's no question those attributes will afford Sanders virtually unlimited options when it comes time to pick a college. In fact, college football's big boys are already lining up. Sanders said he's already receiving recruiting letters from Louisville, Notre Dame, Michigan and Ohio State, just to name a few.

Still early in the recruiting process, Sanders said that one program currently stands out above the rest.

"Louisville," he said. "I've always liked their team. I really like the facilities here, they're very nice."

With two more years of high school, the recruiting process can wait a while longer. For now, Sanders plans to stay busy this summer, attending football camps around the nation.

"I'm going to Georgia's camp and possibly Penn State's," said Sanders, who started every game for Northmont as a sophomore.

There's little doubt Sanders will impress wherever the road takes him this summer.
