Brandon Sanders is just one of several talented prospects that will help make up the Peachtree Ridge secondary in 2007.
Derrick Bryant and Cameron Demps are getting some major looks from several Division I schools. In fact, Demps has already picked up a couple of offers from Ole Miss and Virginia Tech.
Meanwhile, Brandon Sanders is trying to get his name out there as well. He visited Clemson on April 14th and Marshall this past Saturday.
Marshall - "I really liked the coaching staff" said Sanders. "I got along great with everybody there. I really like their coaching style, especially Coach Paul Nichols. He really made me feel welcome there."
"They said they would be at my spring practice in two weeks. They showed me around the campus and everything like that. Hopefully, by the way they were talking, I might get an offer at my practice. It was a great visit."
Clemson - "I wouldn't mind playing at Clemson, but I think Marshall is a better fit for me. I think I connected better with the Marshall coaching staff. I could see myself better at Marshall than I could at Clemson."
Which schools standout for Sanders?
I would have to say Marshall stands out right now," he said. "I like Clemson and Ole Miss. Those are probably my top three right now.
At 5-foot-11.5, 190-pounds, Sanders is a tough competitor that loves to come up and make a big hit on the intended receiver.
"I'm actually a pretty big corner at this level," Sanders said. "I'm able to get off the blocks very well. I'm very physical, especially for a corner. I think that is one of my strengths."
Sanders said he could be playing at corner and a little at free safety for Peachtree Ridge. The Lions, who won a share of the Class 5A State championship last season, will have a new Head Coach in 2007.
"I really like Coach (Bill) Ballard," said Sanders. "I really miss Coach (Blair) Armstrong, but I think Coach Ballard is the kind of coach we need. He's real laid back and he's a cool guy, but when it comes down to it, he's all business."
"He's all about trying to get you into college. He really tries to help you out. I really like him a lot."
Previously, Coach Ballard coached four years at Tucker and compiled a 53-8 record.
Peachtree Ridge should be a team to watch in Class 5A once again next season.
