Gators to get a look at Sanders

Ace Sanders' electrifying performance during Manatee's Kickoff Classic at Tampa Plant has caught the attention of the defending national champions.
Florida has requested the tape of the Canes' 49-33 win over Tampa Plant on Friday, when Sanders grabbed seven catches for 193 yards in three touchdowns. Manatee coach Joe Kinnan said Gators coach Urban Meyer spoke with Sanders, a senior receiver, over the weekend.
"He is an explosive player," Kinnan said of Sanders.
According to, Sanders has received scholarship offers from USF, Miami, Indiana, Iowa, Purdue, South Carolina and Texas Tech.
Sanders has a local connection to the Boilermakers, who are coached by former Manatee assistant Danny Hope. Receiver Eric Williams, who graduated from Manatee over the summer, signed with Purdue in February.
