"I committed to Ole Miss. It's just the place I want to go. They tied for the west last year, and I can be with my boys (Teammates Peria Jerry and Rettario Brown also committed to Ole Miss)," Sanford said.
Who recruited Sanford for the Rebels?
"Coach Luke recruited all 3 of us. He acts the way I act. Seems like he loves to have fun."
Who else did Sanford consider?
"I looked at Marshall and (Mississippi) State. Ole Miss was my offer though."
Where was Sanford when he decided to commit?
"I was in my coach's office. Coach Luke was in there about 11:00am, and he was real happy when I told him."
Sanford will make his official visit to Ole Miss this coming Friday. On January 23rd, the South Panola trio will head to Mississippi State.
