Basketball recruiting question (Posted on 6/13/13 at 6:57 am)
Do anybody know if we are recruiting Brandon Sampson hard. National rankings came out yesterday and he is the #36 player on the list. I think he gone be the number 1 recruit in louisiana also. I don't know fa sure but he might be in the 2015 class. He played on the same team as Martin at Madison Prep and he is true scorer. Something we are missing right now

Sampson can play offense. Shoots the ball as well as any high schooler. Very cocky kid though, solid size and great athleticism but you'll find him 3 point line to 3 point line and not likely anywhere else unless he's gonna try to dunk. Has a long way to go to develop into an all-around basketball player. I've never seen him play defense in the 10+ games I've seen him. Doesn't pass well or at all and no clue how to move without the ball. He'll drift back to half court until he gets it or just stand and watch.

Well, even if he's a immature player, he's only 16 or 17. Has a lot of room to grow. Jarell was just starting to gain national attention about this time last year. Sampson is already getting some spotlight.
