Eddie Jordan has made a splash with his first commitment in the Class of 2015, landing Corey Sanders, a top 100 point guard from Florida.
Sanders, who is ranked as the No. 73 recruit in the class, is a high-flying, 6-foot-1 point guard who has developed a reputation for his aggressiveness and strength going to the rim. He’s a solid creator off the dribble and he has three-point range, although he needs to make that perimeter stroke more consistent.
Landing Sanders is key for Jordan, who has to deal with the unenviable task of building a Rutgers program from the ground up as the Scarlet Knights head to the Big Ten this season. It’s the most talented recruit that he has brought in to date, and while Sanders is not a program-changing kind of player, getting a solid point guard in the fold is always a good way to start a class.
Tennessee, Central Florida, South Florida and DePaul were also in contention to land Sanders.
