Scout.com evaluation: Sanders was Ole Miss' second-highest high school signee. He helped Callaway to the State semifinals while totaling over 20 touchdown passes and over 1,000 yards receiving. On film it looks like he's just a smooth, well-rounded receiver. He runs great routes and can plant his foot in the ground to make you miss. He shows great vision and body control as well. Sanders also does a nice job of catching the ball at its highest point and has soft hands. He can get from first to second gear in a hurry. He's not going to blow by you on the next level, but he has the ability to take it to the house on any touch.

Ole Miss is bringing back six proven receivers this season. If the Rebels run an eight-man rotation, which is under consideration, don't be surprised if Sanders is one of them.
