When Corey Sanders signed with Rutgers in September, he spurned scholarship offers from the likes of Auburn, Marquette, Tennessee, USC and Xavier, among other top programs. Here’s what Rutgers will be getting, and what all those other programs will be missing.
Sanders is a wildly athletic swingman who packs serious muscle and explosiveness in his 6-foot-2, 170-pound frame. He has blazing speed and remarkable quick twitch muscles. He can create a turnover on one end and finish at the other end, even if he has to go around, through and, occasionally, over opponents to finish in the lane.
He has a decent outside jumper, but his real eye-opening skill comes from his athleticism and ability to jump right out of the gym.
Sanders is also an incredible showman, all too happy to celebrate his biggest shots with the crowd.
Keep in mind: These highlights both above and below are from Sanders’ senior season at West Oaks Academy in Central Florida so far. There are still games to come, which means Sanders isn’t done putting together remarkable highlight clips yet.
