This summer, Sanders played with The Family on the Nike EYBL circuit with none other than Kentucky basketball signee Isaiah Jackson. In 11 total games, the three-star wide receiver put up 4.7 points (38% shooting, 35% from three), 2.5 rebounds, and 0.8 assists per contest.

Sanders committed to Mark Stoops and the Kentucky football program back on June 23, choosing the Wildcats over Penn State, Iowa State, Cincinnati, and Indiana, among other offers.
