There he was, the day before Thanksgiving, engaged in conversation with Mack Brown inside the Texas coach's office in the shadow of Darrel K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.

Sanders, who was still committed to Oklahoma State at the time, grew up a Texas fan. He didn't have a clue what was coming next. What transpired was something he'd dreamed about all his life: he'd been offered a scholarship to the University of Texas.
