The 6-foot-1, 195-pound cornerback said he may actually play another position in college.
"The coaches said I might play safety," said Sanders, who played at Peachtree Ridge High School in Suwanee, Ga.
Sanders believed in Ole Miss because the Rebel coaches believed in him. He plans to visit the campus in September.
"They were the first to offer me about four months ago," said Sanders, whose PRHS Lions won the Georgia Class 5A football state title last season. "I was going to wait until I visited (to commit). But I prayed about it and I knew when I committed that was going to be it. God just kept putting Ole Miss on my heart. When I visit, I believe that will be confirmation for me."
Sanders was also recruited by Auburn, North Carolina State, Indiana, Middle Tennessee State, Buffalo, and Ball State.
