Early Life and Family
He is Originally from Sayreville, New Jersey, Sanu was born to a Muslim family and also lived in his parents’ native Sierra Leone as a child. Sanu returned to the United States and lived in Dayton, New Jersey, where he eventually starred at South Brunswick High School as a triple-option quarterback before enrolling at Rutgers University in 2009. In his final season at South Brunswick High School, Sanu led the Vikings to their first playoff berth in nearly 40 years, including three rushing touchdowns of at least 80 yards against Edison High School.
He was ruled ineligible to play during his senior year, due to exceeding NJSIAA’s age restriction; he graduated from high school six months early and enrolled at Rutgers University in January 2009. In track & field, Sanu was one of the state’s top performers in the jumping events. At the 2008 NJSIAA Sectional Championships, he placed 2nd in the triple jump (14.08 m) and 3rd in the long jump (6.43 meters). He also competed as a sprinter, recording personal-best times of 6.94 seconds in the 55 meters and 24.28 seconds in the 200 meters at the 2008 Merli Invitational. He is a fan of soccer and supports West Ham United.
Mike Reiss recently interviewed Sanu’s trainer, Hilton “Route King” Alexander, a former wide receiver and now a trainer for the position. Alexander spoke highly of Sanu’s current physical condition and his readiness for the upcoming season.
“I would tell you he’s probably faster, quicker, leaner and in better shape now than prior to the surgery,” said Alexander. “I would say he’s way ahead of any doctor’s knowledge or prediction where he would have been at this point. Way ahead of the curve.”
According to Alexander, Sanu is well aware his production wasn’t good enough in 2019, and he also understands how much the injury impacted him overall.
“I think he knows he was a shell of himself toward the end of the season,” Alexander said. “He wasn’t in the position where he could do the best he could and be able to offer that Mohamed Sanu that everybody has grown to love all those years in Cinci [2012-15] and Atlanta [2016-2018].”
Sanu suffered the injury in November 2019. He’d just produced a 10-catch, 81-yard, 1-TD performance on November 3 against the Baltimore Ravens, in just his second game with Patriots after the team acquired him from the Atlanta Falcons in a midseason trade. The next week Sanu was hampered by the injury in a win over the Philadelphia Eagles, and he missed the Week 12 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Sanu returned in Week 13 and played in every regular-season game, and the postseason loss to the Tennessee Titans, but he wasn’t the kind of player the Patriots expected. There was talk he’d miss more than one game, and as it turned out, the injury turned into an ankle issue that required offseason surgery.
