Northview High tight end Brock Sanders nabbed his first scholarship offer when Mississippi State extended one earlier this month.
And in turn, Sanders will reward Bulldogs' coaches with a trip to Starkville, Miss. for the team's Spring Game on March 29.
"I am excited to see the campus," Sanders told GAVSV.com. "I have never been to a college campus before except to the University of Georgia so I just want to take it all in. I want to see the facilities and the stadium and meet the players."
Sanders said that even though Mississippi State is the only one to offer so far, he has been getting mail from a handful of other programs.
And two schools in particular stick out.
"I like East Carolina and Michigan State a lot," Sanders said. "East Carolina has a good program. I am not too familiar with them but my dad is and he said it's a good school. Michigan State is a huge program and they are really good every year."
Sanders' impressive size (he stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 210 pounds) is ideal for the college game but he thinks it's his ability to move that frame that has college coaches interested.
"I am pretty quick for my size," Sanders said. "The SEC uses a lot of fast tight ends and that is what they are keying on with me I think. That's probably why my first offer was from an SEC school."
With his visit to Starkville tentatively set, is Sanders set to make a decision early on about where he will be utilizing that quickness?
"I don't think think I'd commit while I am there," he said. "I want to wait until the end of the summer before I decided but I do want to commit before the season starts this year. I want to get it off my chest."
