At 6-foot-6, 320-pound, Jake Sanders (Carrollton, Ga./Carrollton) is a prospect of intrigue relating to Florida State. He has the requisite size to play at tackle, but possibly being best suited as a guard, Sanders would bring a physical dimension to the interior.
The 2014 offensive lineman was in Tallahassee over the weekend to check out the Seminoles' 52-0 win over ACC foe Wake Forest.
"I really enjoyed it," Sanders said. "It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and coach Rick Trickett was very nice and so was coach Dameyune Craig."
The warm greeting of Florida State's staff was arguably the most important thing Sanders noticed while on campus.
"The coaches were friendly and thanked me for coming," he said. "They asked a lot about how my season was going and how I was doing."
As if balancing his own schedule with high school football season in mid-flight wasn't enough, Sanders will be logging the miles this fall. On tap is a trip out West before visiting some institutions within driving range.
"I am going to Colorado State next weekend," Sanders said. "I plan on visiting Louisville, East Carolina, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Appalachian State. I plan on visiting a school every weekend during football season."
Alabama, Georgia Tech and Middle Tennessee also have expressed interest.
