    Saunders is a bit of an enigma. Just look at the scouting services. He's everywhere from a low 2* to a high 4* prospect and anything from a shooting guard to a power forward.

    His travel team (Compton Magic) is where Shannon Sharpe played and is the team that CU prospect Damiene Cain plays on.

    Here's what ESPN says about Saunders:
    Basically, he's a great athlete with a solid frame. He attacks the basket, has good hands and bounce, and has all the tools to be a great rebounder from the wing position and play great defense for us. Needs work on his jumper, but is ok in the mid range and is a good free throw shooter.

    Cali High has Saunders as the #16 player in the state this cycle. http://www.calihighsports.com/articles/121:

    He's # 80 on the Rivals 100 list. Not often the recruiting services have such a big gap between them on a prospect.

    Cali High is reporting that Saunders loved his visit. He's going to Harvard this weekend and then will make a decision (Penn was an earlier visit and is also in the mix).

    He loved the campus and spent a lot of time on academic advisement (education is very important to him). The thing that really resonated with him is the opportunity for early playing time with our needs for at least one wing (guy who can play the "2" and "3") in this class due to the guys that are graduating.

    My guess is that if Saunders doesn't go Ivy League then he'll be a Buff.

    Can't hate on a kid for going to Harvard. Congrats Mr. Saunders.
