Texas Tech in the Mix for Sanders

Fort Worth WR Dominique Sanders is one of the best wide out prospects in the state for the class of 2010. With over twenty offers, which schools are at the top of Sanders list? Scout.com has the latest...

Of the highly recruited trio from Dunbar High School in Fort Worth, the most elusive to catch up with is Dominique Sanders. The 6'1" 200 pound WR/DB/QB with 4.4 speed in the forty is equally as elusive on the gridiron.

Sanders, who is a two time first-team All 7-4A selection, led the Wildcats to a 9-2 mark in 2008 as he hauled in 41 passes for 503 yards and 4 touchdowns.

He was also a threat on the ground, rushing for 565 yards and 4 more touchdowns. This year the versatile athlete will move to quarterback as he'll pilot an offense featuring WR Darius White and RB Rashod Favors.

In addition to his exploits on the gridiron, Sanders is a member of the DHS track team where he was a Regional Qualifier as a sophomore in both the 4x100 and 4x200 relays.

"If I had one strength to describe, it would be my speed, but I'm also a versatile and smart player. Coach moves me around a lot and I have to be a student of the game to learn all the different positions," Sanders explained.

Dominique currently holds over twenty offers, but he's hesitant to name a favorite. Currently, his top seven include Texas, Oklahoma, TCU, Minnesota, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and Oklahoma State. Texas and OU have not yet offered, but all of his other favorites have.

"I'm not really in a rush to name favorites, I am just going to enjoy the process. It helps that [teammates] Rashod (Favors) and Darius (White) are also being recruited and we talk a lot about the process," said Sanders who has attended Junior Days at TCU and SMU.

The Dunbar junior will be busy this summer playing seven on seven for the Wildcats and possibly attending two or three camps as well.

Despite all the attention given to Dominique and his teammates, his main focus is leading Dunbar to a Class 4A State Title.

"We have lost in the first round of the playoffs the past two years, we are focused to not let it happen again this year. We felt like we gave the Stephenville game away last year, being up 14 in the fourth quarter and losing.

"It was tough but we have learned a lot. You gotta play 48 minutes and we are confident we can make noise this year."
