One of Oklahoma's finest high school players is just days away from making his college decision.

Barry Sanders Jr. will announce which school he will attend at Saturday's U.S. Army All-American Bowl game and he is expected to choose Stanford.

A few months ago, Sanders narrowed his list of potential schools down to Oklahoma State, Stanford, Alabama and Florida State. Since then, Sanders told News 9 he was deciding between Alabama, Stanford and Oklahoma State,

Many say Sanders is leaning toward Stanford over Oklahoma State where his dad, Barry Sanders, had a very successful career in the 1980's.

Sanders and the other high school standouts playing in the All-American Bowl, arrived in San Antonio on Sunday to prepare for the matchup.
