William Sanders is a lean and mean offensive lineman, who is on pace to out perform his three-star rating.
Sanders is a product of Brookwood High School in Alabama. He holds 17 D1 offers at the moment, but he is rated as a three-star recruit by multiple recruiting sites. His offer list includes offers from power five programs like Florida State, Vanderbilt and Missouri.
The Brookwood product is looking forward to this summer to figure out when he wants to make a decision.
“I like to make a decision as soon as possible, according to my timeline,” Sanders told Touchdown Alabama. “So with that being said, before August, early August. No later than mid-season.”
A few top SEC programs are interested in getting Sanders on campus to camp this summer.
“I plan on camping in two places right now,” Sanders said. “Alabama and LSU because those are the ones I’ve been invited to. If I get more invites, I’ll consider going to more camps.”
Alabama football has not offered the in-state prospect yet, but the Crimson Tide’s offensive line coach Eric Wolford is in constant contact with him.
“Coach Wolford texts me every other day, and we try to call every now and then,” said Sanders. “I went to a visit there to see spring practice. It was a great visit. Coach Wilford likes me as far as I know. I like Alabama. They are pretty solid. I went to saw practice, and they were moving well. The line seem like they were in sync, of course, there were some kinks to work out in the early spring, but that didn’t stop the fact that they were getting their work in.”
Sanders is working with WinningEdge OL/DL specialist Terrence Swift to improve on the technical side of his game. The 6-foot-3, 295-pounder is a physical run blocker, who currently does not carry any bad weight. He moves well in space, but he wants to work on consistently being disciplined in his technique.
“I really want to work on my stability as far as like when I set back,” Sanders said. “If I’m drive blocking, keeping that core, that center mass stable, so I’m not overextended or sitting back and rocking back.”
