Scout.com's No. 6 rated cornerback visited the Longhorns for the Texas Spring Jamboree.
"It was nice," Sanders said. "I just visited the campus, got a tour and watched the game.
"I thought it was really exciting to watch," Sanders said. "I wanted to get out there and play."
Sanders, whose family also made the trip, said that he also met with Longhorn coaches, who discussed the recruiting process with him.
The trip left some parts of his future in doubt, Sanders said. The Oklahoma State commitment said he wasn't sure if he wanted to remain committed to the Cowboys.
"Right now, I really don't know," Sanders said about his commitment.
Sanders doesn't yet have an offer from the Longhorns, but said he really liked Texas.
"Everybody who grows up in Texas likes Texas," Sanders said. "I still like Oklahoma State, too."
Sanders said he's looking for "basically a great staff," a coaching group that makes him feel at home.
"I want to feel like a family with the team," Sanders said. "And I want somebody who wants me."
Contrary to earlier reports, Sanders said he wasn't focused on playing wide receiver at the next level, a choice that could have had limiting effects on how many scholarship offers he received.
"I just really want to be on the field," Sanders said.
Sanders said he plans to announce his decision at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
