By Michael Carvell

UPDATED: Sanders has de-committed from UGA

  • Prospect: Krenwick Sanders, wide receiver, Wayne County (Ga.) High School, Class of 2014
  • Colleges: Surprisingly committed to UGA on Nov. 29, 2012, a few days before the Bulldogs played in the SEC Championship game. He picked UGA over Vanderbilt, South Florida and UNC.
  • Why UGA? “I’ve been a Dawg since I could walk.”
  • Vitals: 6-foot-2, 195 pounds, 3.3 GPA and wants to major in Civil Engineering
  • Recruiting rankings: TBA
  • Things to know: N/A
  • They said it:   “He’s probably been one of our most explosive players since he was in the ninth grade. We knew the first day he walked on the football field with us, he was going to play Div. I football. Georgia is getting a player that can stretch the field horizontally and vertically. He’s an explosive player. He can run the underneath routes and also make the big catches deep. I think he brings a lot of the table. Most of all, Georgia is getting an in-state kid that is going to keep the in-state pipeline they got going.” – Wayne County football coach Jody Grooms.
  • Favorite non-coach teacher? "Mrs. Felicia Hayes was my math teacher my 9th and 10 grade years. She helped me with anything I needed, as far as school goes. And even though I don’t have any classes with her now, she still helps me whenever I need it.”
  • Nickname? “I was playing travel baseball when I was seven years old, and my coach had a hard time saying my first name. So he took K and W from my first name and called me ‘KW.’ That stuck until sixth grade and then our South Georgia slang got thrown into it and it became K-Dub.”
