Indiana got a visit from Michigan based point guard Jonathan Sanderson on Wednesday.
The 6-foot-2 Sanderson started as a freshman at Saline H.S. (Saline, Mich.) and had a massive first-year campaign. He was named second team AP all-state after averaging 19.3 points, six rebounds, four assists and 1.5 steals per contest. He also shot 91 percent from the free-throw line and 46 percent from the 3-point line.
247Sports national analyst Eric Bossi wrote this after watching Sanderson this summer:
“He’s an impressive looking guard,” Bossi said. “He’s got a great looking frame with lean strength and he moves really well. Sanderson is a skilled scorer from deep and in traffic and also shows some nifty passing instincts.”
It should be noted, Sanderson’s father Jon is the strength and conditioning coach for the Michigan basketball team, a role he’s held since 2009. A native of Mansfield, Ohio, the elder Sanderson played college basketball at Ohio State (1997-99) and Ohio (2000-02).
Sanderson claims offers from Michigan, Iowa and Illinois from the high major ranks.
Below are both high school and travel highlights of Sanderson over the last year.
