"Coach Tolbert has talked with Coach Barnett about me and they are going to look at my game film. Coach Barnett said they are still working on the 2011 class, but will soon be getting with me to learn more about me."
Another former player for Dantonio and Barnett at Cincinnati has also seen and talked about Sanford to his former coaches.
"I worked with Mike Mickens at a camp this past summer," Sanford said about the former University of Cincinnati cornerback. "He told me he liked my skills and felt I could play at a high level."
Sanford has seen a few programs show early interest.
