For most college football players, their first time on campus is their first time in the spotlight.
For C.J. Sanders, playing receiver for Stanford or Tennessee or any other major football program might be a step down from what he has already experienced.
You might not remember Sanders’ name but there is a good chance you’ve seen him. He has nine movie or TV show acting credits to his name, according to IMDB, and had one pretty notable role as a young Ray Charles in the critically acclaimed movie “Ray.” Now Sanders is a popular recruit from Brentwood (Tenn.) Academy in the class of 2015, with offers already from Mississippi State, Stanford and Tennessee, according to Rivals. He also has a pretty strong connection with Ohio State, since his father Chris Sanders was a star receiver for the Buckeyes in the 1990s and spent seven seasons with the Tennessee Titans franchise from 1995-2001.
Lining up as a FBS player would be a big deal for anyone, but that moment probably won’t be too big for Sanders.
