In March, Baylor School (Tennessee) offensive lineman Brycen Sanders narrowed his roster to four finals from LSU, Oklahoma, Ole Miss and Tennessee, knowing all along that his plan was to commit in June.
Ole Miss received the first official visit in early April, several weeks before trips to Tennessee (May 27) and Oklahoma (June 3).
That gave Sanders plenty of time to cool off with the rebels.
But the 6-foot-5, 280-pound prospect, ranked 8th inside offensive lineman in the nationnever done.
He kept comparing every other school to Ole Miss – and none stacked up.
“My last visit was the official visit in April,” Sanders said. “During my visit, I felt really comfortable on campus, around the coaches and the other players. They set the bar very high that no other school could reach.”
On Monday, Sanders ended his recruiting, announcing his commitment to Ole Miss on social media:
“They made me a big priority for a while and I have a great relationship with the coaching staff,” he said. “I felt super comfortable in Oxford and on the Ole Miss campus, and I will have the chance to arrive early and help the team.”
Although Sanders hasn’t officially laid out a plan, he intends to try and enroll early to jump-start his college career.
“There’s a good chance I will, but nothing is 100% yet,” he said.
Sanders is the fourth entry in the 2023 recruiting class, joining four-star Mississippi athlete Suntarine Perkins, three-star Tennessee quarterback Marcel Reed and three-star Texas safety Daniel Demery.
