“The recruiting process was really long and to a certain extent it was stressful,” Saunders said. “There were a lot of schools that were calling and basically telling me the same things over and over. They were telling me things I didn’t really want to hear. I was kind of stuck in between whether I wanted to be a midmajor player or a high-major player. When I got to Toledo, as soon as I got there, I immediately saw myself fitting in there.
Coming from a prep program in Ontario, at Orangeville Prep led by coach Nate Johnson which has produced NBA players such as Jamal Murray and Thon Maker, Saunders was recruited by a mix of midmajor and high-major programs, including Temple, Boise State, Tulane, and Iona before settling on Toledo.
