Cougs are finalists for pair of 4-star WRs; including Georgia's Braylon Sanders who tells CF.C he is down to three

WIDE RECEIVER prospect Jamire Calvin announced on Twitter Wednesday he was down to two: Washington State and Nebraska. And it turns out another 4-star wide receiver also has the Cougars among his finalists. Here’s what Braylon Sanders out of Hogansville, Ga., just told

Sanders (6-0, 178) says he is down to three schools.

“Washington State, Colorado State and Cincinnati,” Sanders told

Sanders said he will announce on Signing Day (Feb. 1) and that he does not have a leader among the three. 

Sanders visited CSU earlier this month, Washington State this past weekend and has a final trip to Cincinnati beginning Friday.

“Washington State has a great program going, they’re one of the top teams in the Pac-12. They obviously throw the ball a lot and that’s something I’m looking (for). They have a great quarterback in Luke Falk. They have a great program there,” said Sanders.

WSU outside receivers coach Dave Nichol (pictured above with Sanders this past weekend) is running the recruiting point for the Cougs.

Nichol was by Callaway High for an in-school visit today, Sanders said.

“Coach Nichol, he’s a great guy. Me and him have a great relationship,” said Sanders.

Sanders had praise for both his visit experiences at Washington State and CSU.

“I felt like it went very well,” said Sanders of his time in Pullman. “I got to talk to Coach Leach and I hung out with some of the players. (The) facilities (stood out) they have a great academic program and what I’m looking to major in (Physical Education).

“I felt at home when I visited (CSU) and me and coach (Alvis) Whitted  have a great relationship. They’re looking for me to come in and play early and make an impact … I have a great relationship with all the coaches there at Colorado State,” said Sanders.

Sanders is ranked the No. 34 wide receiver prospect nationally and a member of the 300.  He said distance won’t be a key factor in his decision.

“It’s more important that I can come in and make an impact on the team,” said Sanders. “Distance really doesn’t matter anymore because the schools that I’m choosing from are all away from home.

“If you get along well with the players, your four years is going to go by easy … I’m looking for a place where it feels like family.”
