Battle of the Carolinas
The 6'5, 270 pound Saunders, who is rated as the #18 tight end prospect in the nation, likes what both programs have to offer, and he told Scout.com in a recent interview that choosing between the two schools has been the toughest decision he's ever had to make.
"Both North Carolina and South Carolina have great coaches and people. They are two great programs," said Saunders. "It's real hard. It's the toughest thing I've ever had to do."
After making official visits to both schools in recent weeks and talking his decision over with family and friends, Saunders is believed to have made his final decision. Differing reports have surfaced regarding his college destination, but Saunders himself has played things close to the vest leading up to his announcement.
The premier Tar Heel State prospect will make his commitment known at a school banquet on Monday evening, which is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
