Brentwood Academy WR C.J. Sanders to transfer
One of the area's top football recruits for the class of 2015 will be transferring at the end of the school year.
Brentwood Academy wide receiver and Division II-AA Mr. Football finalist C.J. Sanders informed his team on Tuesday he will be moving to California with his family.

"They have a history over there, so they're going to move and he's going to honor his family like he should do," said BA head coach Cody White. "That's more important than what we've got going on over here. It's going to work out. He'll do a good job out there."
Sanders had 52 catches for 738 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns for the 8-4 Eagles last season. He also scored on four runs and one return.
"His talents are remarkable, but he's an even better kid," White said. "We're not going to be able to replace him. We don't have that kind of ability right now. It's tough, but he'll go on to do some great things."
Sanders is a four-star recruit on 247sports.com. He's fielding scholarship offers from Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Stanford, Southern California, Northwestern, Notre Dame and Duke.
He will attend Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks in the fall.
