Zack Sanchez wasted little time demonstrating that his cover ability needed to be on the field with the Oklahoma Sooners in 2013. Sanchez started all 13 games and recorded 13 pass breakups and 46 total tackles as he earned freshman All-American honors across numerous publications and organizations. Enters the 2014 season on the Jim Thorpe Award watch list. His slight build (5-11, 180) belies a toughness and tenacity the Sooner defense needs in the secondary.
Was a Rivals.com three star recruit after his senior season at Central High School in Keller, Texas. Recorded nine interceptions on defense and had 45 catches for 994 and 13 touchdowns as a receiver. Would be tabbed an AP first-team all-state selection after his senior season.
After redshirting in 2012, he impressed immediately and earned a starting spot before the start of the 2013 season. He was named a freshman All-American after his initial season and recorded two interceptions for the Sooners. Returned an interception for a score against Kansas State and broke up a career-high four passes against TCU.
