Although Saunders is strongly considering both offering schools, it's two other schools that currently hold the title of co-leaders.
"I really like Notre Dame and Florida," said Saunders. "I've been liking Notre Dame since I was a little kid, because I'm from Indiana. With Florida, I just really like how they run the program – how they throw to their tight ends."
This Saturday Saunders will take his first unofficial campus visit when he attends N.C. State's junior day. The following Saturday he will head down to Clemson for the Tigers' junior day.
Saunders earned all-region and all-conference honors as a junior after recording 20 catches for 308 yards and six touchdowns at tight end, and 52 tackles, four sacks, 14 tackles for a loss and two forced fumbles at defensive end.
