D-Day: Powers all-state shooting guard Demarco Sanders verbals to Ferris State

Posted: March 31, 2010 by Jared Field in College, High School

FLINT, Michigan — One of the top shooting guards in the state, Flint Powers’ Demarco Sanders, has verbally committed to Ferris State.

Sanders was the leading scoring on a Chargers team that landed three players on the all-state list in class B. He is a natural 6-2 southpaw shooting guard with a reliable outside shot and the quicks to finish at the basket. 

As a senior, Sanders averaged 19.1 points per game and led the Chargers to the class B quarterfinals. He shot better than 53 percent from the floor. As a junior, Sanders was an integral part of Powers’ class B state championship team.

Ferris State went 16-13 last season in the GLIAC and is coached by Bill Sall. He should compete for solid minutes in the Bulldogs backcourt as a freshman. Ferris State returns two of its top three scorers from last season including forward Justin Keenan.

Sanders is unique among college-bound guards in Mid-Michigan, in that he was an unknown commodity right up until his senior season. He had made a name for himself on the AAU circuit, but it didn’t translate over to the high school game. But when he got the opportunity in the form of big minutes at Powers, he ran with it.

Sanders will be able to play against his high school teammate, Patrick O’Brien, in the GLIAC. O’Brien, a 6-3 forward, will be competing at Saginaw Valley State next season.

    DeMarco’s best basketball is ahead of him. Besides Hawkins, he was by far the most talented guy at Powers this year.

  2. Kirk says:

    Wow this is kind of shocking, the way he has been talking he was going straight D1 but he will be a good fit at Ferris and see big minutes, hopefully, good solid player. Congrats Demarco….
