South Carolina Gamecocks wide receiver Ace Sanders has decided to leave school and try his luck at the next level.
Sanders led the Gamecocks with 45 receptions and 9 touchdowns last season and is a very skilled return man averaging 15.3 yards per return in 2012.
While South Carolina hasn’t officially made an announcement on Sanders leaving school, he did tweet the following.
Sanders leaving early is a bit of a surprise to a lot of people because he is listed at 5’8″ and only 175 pounds. He isn’t projected to be a first round or even a second round pick.
Sanders is probably being viewed as more of a return man than a number 1 receiver.
