After a brilliant freshman season on the hardwood, Saline’s 6-2 high-scoring combo guard Jonathan “Jonny Buckets” Sanderson is seeing the college scholarship offers beginning to flood in. Just in the last week, Baby Baller Buckets has received bids from U-D Mercy, Ohio and Duquesne.

This kid is going to be a future Blue Chipper like his pops. His dad Jon is the Michigan Wolverines hoops program’s strength and conditioning coach who played at Ohio State and Ohio, even starting at small forward for OSU’s 1999 Final Four squad. The younger Sanderson plays well beyond his age and can score at all three levels. Sanderson’s hardwood IQ is through the roof and his dedication to his craft is tireless. With his dad providing the blueprint for his body’s physical development and the scoring records at Saline bound to fall by the wayside these next few years, watch out for Jonny Buckets to be the way-too-early frontrunner for Mr. Basketball 2026.
