RB Trey Sanders is considered the No. 1 RB prospect for the 2019 recruiting class. Based on his latest announcement, we now have a clearer idea of where Sanders will be playing in college.

On Wednesday, Sanders went on Twitter and announced that he would be making his commitment decision on December 19 on ESPN.

The news will certainly have several SEC programs waiting with baited breath.

247Sports' Crystal Ball Predictions gives Alabama a 90-percent chance of landing Sanders. Florida has a 10-percent chance of securing his services.

Sanders is a five-star recruit and rated as the No. 6 prospect in the country by 247Sports.

Recruiting insider Luke Stampini went so far as to compare the IMG Academy standout to Ezekiel Elliott.

If Alabama really is on the inside track to landing Sanders, then one of the best offenses in college football could get all the more dangerous for years to come.
