Ace Sanders is a cat-quick wide receiver prospect from Bradenton Manatee High School in Florida. Sanders, 5-9 and 166 pounds, caught 29 passes for 587 yards and scored seven touchdowns through the air in 2008. He also returned one kickoff for a score.
"So far I have scholarship offers from 10 or 11 schools," Sanders said. "Right now I am pretty open and don't have any favorites. Teams like South Carolina, West Virginia, Purdue, Indiana, USF, Syracuse, Iowa, Iowa State, Florida Atlantic and Florida International. South Carolina and West Virginia are two schools that I think I will visit for sure."
Sanders has had a busy summer and over the last two weekends he has camped at both Florida and Georgia for Friday Night Lights and Dawg Night.

"That was the second time I have been to Georgia and the first time I have gone there to work out. Dawg Night was real nice and there was great competition. I thought the atmosphere was real nice and the coaching staff is real cool. Coach (Mark) Richt is down to earth. They have not offered yet. Georgia told me they would come to my first game and see what I can do. They saw me catch the ball and make people miss. They said they want to see what else I can do.
"I went to Friday Night Lights this past weekend and that was one of the best camps I went to. I thought I performed pretty well. All the coaches spoke highly of me after wards. I have been to Florida before and I like how they do everything with high intensity. Everything is so fast paced and team orientated. Florida told me they are going to meet on Monday and get back with me."
So what would happen if Florida and or Georgia were to offer him?
"Man, if they were to offer me that would certainly change things."
Ace's real name is Tracy. Ace is a nickname given to him by his father.
