The Kentucky football program’s trend of signing elite basketball athletes continues.

2020 three-star wide receiver and Beecher HS (MI) standout Earnest Sanders already spent his senior season turning heads on the football field, and now, he’s focused on turning heads on the basketball floor to close out his high school career.

A well known high-flyer, Sanders threw down yet another ridiculous dunk this week, this time off an assist from 2020 four-star guard Jalen Terry.

Just two weeks ago, Sanders threw down an impressive poster dunk during a game, as well.

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.

Here are some other highlights from Sanders’ basketball career:

Not too shabby for a football player…

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.

    Talk about high pointing it in the redzone sheesh. He’s dunking like that at 6ft 195lbs. He’s built like a RB, has hops like a foward, and is catch and dunking it 1 handed.

    This kid gets after it. Seems like he takes it personally if the ball is near him, and he’s going to go get it, rather than wait for ot to come to him. Excited about this group of receivers
