Georgia picked up a commitment from Class of 2014 wide receiver Krenwick Sanders (Jesup, Ga./Wayne County) on Thursday evening according to his high school coach Jody Grooms. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound junior picked the Bulldogs over South Florida, North Carolina and Vanderbilt. He was also hearing from Notre Dame, N.C. State, Washington and LSU.

Sanders confirmed the commitment shortly after. When asked if he had committed to Georgia, the notoriously reserved Sanders replied, “Yes I did,” He expounded later in a text message.

“I grew up liking Georgia and I have been thinking about committing since they offered," Sanders said. "So I decided I might as well go ahead and do it.“

Sanders' teammate, defensive tackle Jeremy Patterson, also confirmed Sanders' commitment to the Bulldogs.

Sanders visited Georgia to watch the Bulldogs host Tennessee. He left with Georgia high on his list.

“Georgia stands out to me right now,” Sanders said at the conclusion of his visit. “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.”

Sanders started as a freshman and a sophomore, racking up a combined over 900 yards and 12 touchdowns for those the seasons.
Michigan is targeting some top prospects at wide receiver, and the coaching staff got its chance to impress one of the targets in person. Receiver Alvin Bailey (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) took a trip to Ann Arbor for the first time and said the visit boosted Michigan's position.

"It helped them a lot. I was already up on Michigan, but this definitely helped," he said. "I knew some things about them, but being able to see it in person it meant a lot."

Bailey, who is the No. 5 ranked athlete in the country, said the best part of the trip for him was seeing the Big House up close, since he has never seen a stadium that size. After a spontaneous game of pickup basketball with his friends, he got a chance to sit down with the coaching staff to discuss what Michigan has to offer.
