Sanders Says He's Still A Cowboy Commit

Oklahoma State football fans have been concerned recently that Big 12 rival Texas A&M has been targeting Cowboy commitments. Actually, that is just recruiting. A&M has done some timely tugging but there were some internet rumors circulating this past week about four-star explosive skills player Kendall Sanders from Athens, Texas, who committed to Oklahoma State in February.

"Yes, my dad had been telling me about some of that," Kendall Sanders said after spending much of the weekend and especially Sunday on an unofficial visit to Stillwater and watching the record number of players on hand for Oklahoma State's half-day mini camp.

"I've had a great time here and I'm committed to Oklahoma State."

It appeared from watching that Sanders knew some of the players in attendance at the camp as he was talking to some of them mainly after they finished running the 40-yard dash. It makes sense as a number of the campers were from high schools in East Texas, near Athens.

Sanders runs a legit 4.4 and change in the forty, and last season he rushed for 1,069 yards and 13 touchdowns on 123 carries and caught 24 passes for 780 yards and 10 more touchdowns. He was named co-MVP of District 17-3A and earned All-Henderson County Player of the Year honors.

A lot of players know who he is.

"It looked pretty good, some good players there," said Sanders of the camp. "It was hard to watch. I would have liked to jump out there in the one-on-one drills."

Sanders watched part of the camp standing with Oklahoma State coaches and his father. He also stood with some Cowboy players, including All-American wide receiver Justin Blackmon and hard-hitting sophomore safety Daytawion Lowe.

Sanders did tell us how he did Saturday as that was his ACT testing day. "I thought I did okay," he said. "The time was the only thing that bothered me. I didn't always get everything done by the time, but I know I will take it again, and now I have a better feel for it."

Don't be surprised even if the time got him some if he doesn't score what he needs. Sanders is a complete prospect and is also a pretty good student.
