BREVARD COUNTY • ROCKLEDGE, FLORIDA – Former Rockledge Raider, Razorback Raheim Sanders entered the NCAA transfer portal after spending the last three seasons in Arkansas.
The former 4-star recruit dealt with injuries in 2023 where he only appeared in six games and finished with 62 rush attempts. The former Rockledge standout will have 1 year of eligibility remaining.
In 2022 Sanders had a historic season where he rushed for 10 touchdowns and 1,443 yards, fourth-most in a single season in Arkansas Razorback history.
Sanders finished first-team All-SEC for the Razorbacks in 2022 and became just the second Razorback to ever run for 1,400+ yards and return to school the following year, joining Arkansas legend Darren McFadden, who ran for a then-school record 1,647 yards in 2006 before breaking his record in 2007 with 1,830 yards.
The former Raider graduated from Rockledge back in 2021.
