5-star Texas RB target Trey Sanders decommits from Alabama

The Florida product is officially back on the market.

Trey Sanders

A new Texas Longhorns target is uncommitted again, as 2019 Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy running back Trey Sanders ended his pledge to the Alabama Crimson Tide on Monday:

As the nation’s No. 1 running back in the 2019 class indicated, Alabama remains in the mix. Texas could also prove to be a contender after offering Sanders during the middle of December.

For a consensus five-star prospect, Sanders either doesn’t have as many offers as one might expect, perhaps because of his early Alabama pledge, or simply hasn’t reported all of his offers to the recruiting services. Expect more programs to join the mix in the coming weeks following the decommitment of Sanders.

Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Miami, and Oklahoma are all schools with confirmed offers out to the 5’11.5, 216-pounder.

Since Sanders is from Florida and had two early 247Sports Crystal Ball picks to the Seminoles, convincing the nation’s No. 10 prospect to leave the Southeast will likely be a monumental task for the Longhorns.

However, the track record of running backs coach Stan Drayton suggests that it isn’t impossible.
