"It's hard, because Coach Jones recruited me the whole time," Sanders said. "I had a very strong bond with him. He's the one who told me all about the school and stayed with me. When I heard he left, I did have some thoughts about the decision, but I am still committed to West Virginia. I don't think I will take any other visits. I have been hearing from Wake Forest some, but I think I am good with West Virginia."
Following the announcement of Jones' departure, head coach Rich Rodriguez contacted WVU's recruits, including Sanders.
"He told me everything was good, that I still had a scholarship and that they still wanted me," the short, yet speedy and explosive athlete related. "I need to build a better bond with Coach Rod now, and get to know him better."
Sanders' teammate, wideout Andrew Harris, has similar views. Sanders said he and Harris have had some conversations since Jones' departure.
"Andrew and I talked about it several times," Sanders said. "We both have had some thoughts about the situation, but I think we are both settled in with West Virginia."
