Wide receiver Krenwick Sanders (Jesup, Ga./Wayne County) was flying under the radar when he received a scholarship offer from the Georgia coaching staff in March. Or at least Mark Richt and company were hoping that he was. But interest in the 6-foot-2, 185-pound junior has increased, as has his offer list.
“I have offers from Georgia, South Florida, North Carolina and Vanderbilt,” Sanders said. “Coach Richt gave me the Georgia offer last year. He told me that he wanted to offer me a scholarship and told me to keep working and to get better.”
More offers are likely on the way as Sanders took Richt’s advice to heart. The tall wideout says he has improved his route-running and has caught four touchdowns so far this year.
“I talked to the coach from Notre Dame the other day,” Sanders said. “I am hearing from N.C. State, Washington and some others. I don’t remember all of them. Oh, and LSU. I haven’t really watched them this year. I also went to Clemson this summer for a camp.”
Sanders visited Georgia on Saturday to catch the Bulldogs’ game against the Tennessee Volunteers. He left impressed.
“Georgia stands out to me right now,” Sanders said. “I talked to Coach [Tony] Ball. He told me really watch the game. I watched the whole field. I liked looking at the facilities and all that. We went into the weight room and that was really nice. I talked to Raekwon [McMillan] (Hinesville, Ga./Liberty County). We talk when we see each other. We didn’t talk about where we were going. But I had a good time. I have always liked Georgia, I don’t know why. They were one of my favorites, them and Alabama.”
The Crimson Tide coaching staff has already hosted Sanders once this season and will do so again.
“I am going back to Alabama for the game against Texas A&M,” Sanders said. “We went down there a few weeks ago when they played Western Kentucky.”
