From the 2004 film “Ray” starring Jamie Foxx
Nationwide — What ever happened to CJ Sanders, the young actor who played young Ray Charles in the 2004 film “Ray”? Well, he’s now 19 years old and playing football as a freshman at Notre Dame University, which has one of the most recognized college football programs in the country.
He reportedly was considered a four-star recruit, was rated as the 37th best wide receiver prospect of his class, and was awarded a full scholarship to the University. But CJ isn’t the only one in his family to find success in football. His dad, Christopher Sanders is a former Tennessee Titans wide receiver and he also played for the Houston Oilers. Even his stepfather, Corey Harris, played 12 seasons in the NFL.
