    2022 RB Stephan Byrd (Canal Winchester). Definitely passes the "look" test.

    THE HURRY UP: KADEN SAUNDERS PRIMED FOR A BIG SOPHOMORE SEASON, TYLER BARON INCLUDES BUCKEYES IN TOP-FIVE
    Taylor Lehman on August 11, 2019 at 8:20 pm @taylorrlehman


    KADEN SAUNDERS PREPPED FOR "REALLY BIG" SEASON
    The last the media was able to see of Westerville South 2022 athlete Kaden Saunders was at Ohio State’s one-day camp in June, where Saunders said he was “very disappointed" with himself while recovering from a hamstring injury.

    While working his way back to full health, Saunders saw a dip in his 40-yard dash time, but he was still able to get in some work with Brian Hartline and Jeff Hafley at wide receiver and defensive back.

    Entering his sophomore year, the Westerville South standout feels like he will take the steps needed to eventually get the offers he’s primed for.

    “I feel like this year is going to be really big for me,” Saunders told Eleven Warriors. “I’ve become more of a leader this year, and they want to get me the ball as much as I can get the ball. I run the wildcat, I play outside receiver, slot, and some DB too.”

    Saunders released his scrimmage tape from this weekend, and it confirms that Westerville South is looking to get him the ball more often in 2019. As a freshman, he ran the ball 27 times for 203 yards and caught just 12 passes for 229 yards, as well as worked in the return game. It’s not uncommon for freshmen to not be given the ball often at the high school level, but given Saunders’ explosiveness and big-play ability, it’s a no-brainer to find him in space more often.

    For example, Westerville South ran the wildcat formation just twice with Saunders receiving the snap in 2018. He kept it once and handed it off once. This was the one keep he had.

    In his tape from this weekend, he had a keep from the wildcat formation too. There were also many other designed plays that targeted Saunders, such as hitches with soft coverage and jet sweeps.

    The key for Saunders, as it is for many smaller, quicker prospects is staying healthy. His measurements on his 247Sports profile come in at 5-foot-10, 155 pounds, but he said he’s hit 160 “multiple times” this offseason and can tell he’s getting stronger and faster.

    Despite what he’s needed to work on with his size, schools like Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State and West Virginia have already offered him. Ohio State has not yet offered, since it typically doesn’t offer many 2022 prospects and also because it can be patient with in-state prospects.

    “I really hope they offer after this year,” Saunders said about Ohio State.

    KADEN SAUNDERS IS HEARING FROM THE BUCKEYES AND WAITING FOR AN OFFER

    The fastest player at the camp last Sunday was Kaden Saunders who clocked in a 4.40 forty yard dash en route to earning MVP of the wide receivers group.

    Saunders, a Westerville, Ohio native showed up wearing a Penn State jacket and is very high on the Nittany Lions but after speaking to people at the camp it's clear that Ohio State is the offer he wants. However, it is hard to tell when that offer might come as the Buckeyes are pursuing Saunders as cornerback even though he wants to play offense in college.

    Regardless, it looks as though that Saunders is more than willing to put in the necessary work to earn an offer from Ohio State. Expect Saunders to continue tearing up the spring camp circuit this fall in hope of earning an offer from the local Buckeyes.
