Sanders missed most of his junior campaign with a torn ACL but is rapidly getting back to the point he was before his injury.
"I've been doing everything," Sanders told Tiger Rag. "I've gone through every practice this spring with nothing feeling bad or anything. It really feels good. Everything is going real good. I wouldn't say it is at 100 percent but maybe 90."
With a host of scholarship offers already under his belt, Sanders is checking five schools with one ahead of the rest.
"Mainly LSU right now," he said. "I'm going to Auburn this weekend for the Nike Combine and then in two weeks I'm going to Colorado's camp. Then I'm coming back to LSU's camp. I'm kind of interested in Texas and Oklahoma, too. Those are my top five right there."
Would he consider LSU his leader at this point?
"Right now I'd say they are," said Sanders. "I go to about two games every year and I've always been a Tiger fan. Seeing all of the players from West Monroe play down there is very attractive to me."
Since Sanders is already familiar with LSU and its surroundings, what are his impressions of Saturday night in Tiger Stadium?
"It's awesome," he said. "Before the game you get to go down to the sideline and you see all the people. The atmosphere is just great down there."
