"Stephon is a relentless type player. He goes 110% every second every play," said Webb. "I think what the smart recruiters have noticed about him is his arrow is pointing up. Right now he is about 235 pounds, but you look at him and realize he is just going to keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger. He is going to wind up being 265 to 270 and very athletic after he hits the weights. I think the biggest thing for him is it's going to take time to fill out. Maybe another year or two."
"He's always been a mature player, but I think the biggest difference this year is the off-seaon he had," said Webb. "He has gotten size-ably bigger and stronger. He has always been athletic, but is stronger compered to last year. He is up to about 235 pounds and is 6-foot-3."
Sanders ranks 30th out of 580 students, so academics were a major factor in his decision to verbal to SMU.
Scout.com's Greg Powers had this to say about Sanders commitment to the Mustangs today.
"Sanders is a player that still has his best football playing days ahead of him, but for now he is an unreal physical specimen with raw upside. He has long arms and the frame to carry some more weight to play defensive end in college, but he is going to have to continue working hard on his techniques at the position. He has a tendency to let offensive linemen get to deep on him, which makes it hard for him to shed blocks. He is not super explosive on the first step, but after he gets his feet going he can cover some ground. He is definitely a project but he has a solid upside, which is why he racked up a double digit offer sheet."
