WHO'S NO. 1?

It’ll be hard to find a defensive back as smooth and technically sound at the high school level as Sanchez is. The Ohio State commit also has everything you’d want in a modern cornerback. He’s got unique size at 6-foot-3, 170 pounds. Sanchez is also fast with loose hips that help him redirect in coverage quickly.

Both his parents were collegiate athletes at UTEP so he also comes from an athletic family. Sanchez is the complete package at cornerback. The Texas native is taller than most corners but he’s much more than a great frame. He’ll see the field early and often in Columbus.
