The question posed to 12 veteran players this week: “If you had to pick one —and ONLY ONE — player who has impressed you the most during camp, who would it be and why?”
The winner: Ace Sanders, receiver and punt returner (5 votes)
Even the veterans who are casual college football watchers knew Denard Robinson because he played a high-profile position (quarterback) and made high-profile plays (touchdowns) for a high-profile program (Michigan).
But Sanders has been a revelation.
“Everybody’s saying Ace, right?” kicker Josh Scobee said.
“He’s just a special talent,” linebacker Russell Allen said. “Obviously we haven’t played in a regular season game yet, but so far, he’s been fun to watch.”
Sanders is a player to monitor, especially early in the season with Justin Blackmon suspended for four games.
