Texas athlete Dominique Sanders has decided to take his trip to Minnesota this weekend as originally…
"I Love the Spread"
Dominique Sanders, the 6-foot, 195-pound three-star wide receiver/cornerback from Dunbar High School in Fort Worth, Texas, took his first official visit on Sept. 26 to Utah when the Utes took on Louisville. "I liked the people a lot," Sanders said about his time at Utah. "They were all great and I felt at home there. They went out of their way to show me a good time. They were easy to talk to and fun to hang with." Sanders says he was also impressed with the Utes game day atmosphere. "It was really cool," he said. "It was hype. It was sold out and the fans were really nice." He says the Utes are recruiting him the hardest. None-the-less, Sanders continues to deny a leader, admitting only to favoring Utah, Minnesota, Texas Tech, Houston and Texas A&M. All of his favorites have offered (20 total). Although he doesn't have any other official visits set yet, he says he's close to setting up a trip with Minnesota. "I was actually going to visit them this weekend (Oct. 10)," he said. "But I'm taking the SAT on Saturday instead." Another school that Sanders says he'd like to visit is Texas Tech. "I love the spread," he said. "They throw the ball a lot. I remember last year I went to see their bowl practice and loved it. The coaches are really cool and I love their offense. "I like everything about Tech," he said. Another Texas school with a potent offense on Sanders' list is Houston. "A lot of people don't believe me that Houston is on my list, but they are," he said. "I'm definitely interested. "They have a great team and I love how they are playing," he said. "I also know a lot of people who've visited Houston and have checked it out and they all loved it. I really want to see what it's like." Sanders also plans on checking out A&M as well. "They have a good program," he said. "They're still getting better and I've been there before and really like it there. I always have a good time." Although he's ranked as the No. 36 cornerback in the country by Scout.com, Sanders says all of his favorites are recruiting him as a wide receiver. Previously, Sanders also listed Florida and LSU as possibilities. "I haven't been hearing from Florida anymore," he said. "I still get things from LSU, but they like me more for defense." He says he doesn't have a timeframe for making a decision. "I haven't been thinking about it because I'm real busy with my season," he said. "Once things ease up I'll start looking around more and narrow things down." Dunbar High School has a 4-2 record and this is a bye week. Sanders reports a 3.1 core GPA and is retaking the SAT on Oct. 10.
