When you think of South Florida sports, you immediately think of the athletes that come out of this area. Every where you look, players are showing off their array of athletic talent and putting the ball in the basket in unique ways. While skill players here are a dime a dozen, it is even more vital to have individuals who can limit possessions and protect the rim.

When digging deeper, Sanders eclipsed double-digit blocks in four games this season, including a 14-block performance against Crestwood Prep (Ontario). While the number might jump out of you, the senior can alter shot attempts and disrupt offensive sets with his length alone. If you are looking at a marker for an opponents field goal percentage to collapse, point to Sanders as one of the reasons. In helping South Miami to a 22-win season, Sanders picked up an offer from Illinois State.
