Sanders did not play basketball in the ninth grade, and the private school he attended did not offer it. However, after he transferred to Port St. Lucie High School, the school’s basketball coach, Kareem Rodriguez, saw potential in the then 6’1″ Sanders and prevailed on him to play for the team. Sanders grew to 6’4″ in his second year and to 6’6″ in his third. He would sprout further to 6’9″ in his senior year. His production and growth spurt was enough that Rodriguez alerted his friend Tony Pujol, an assistant at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), to watch out for him. He began garnering statewide attention in his junior campaign as he helped Port St. Lucie reach the Class 5A state semifinals. In his senior year, while averaging 18.9 points and 13 rebounds, Sanders led Port St. Lucie (20–8) to the District 13-5A Championship, and was named by the Associated Press to the First Team All-State. He committed to the VCU Rams when major school only just started to take interest in him.
