Sampson on his Way?

As mentioned below, Andrew Brommer has reopened his recruitment and may not end up a Gopher.

Tubby may be all ready to fill that scholarship offer with Ralph Sampson III, a three-star recruit according to both Rivals and Scout, and the 23rd best center in his class according to Scout.

As mentioned previously, Sampson was in town and took a visit to the University of Minnesota campus last week. According to Rivals, the 6-11, 220 pound Sampson really enjoyed his visit. They report

"This past weekend at the Nike Memorial Day Classic Ralph Sampson III made a big name for himself with his outstanding play. Minnesota was his first visit three weeks ago and Sampson enjoyed his trip as well as the personnel he met while in the Twin Cities. It is believed that Sampson may be close to committing but is that fact or fiction?"

Unfortunately, I don't have the kind of money to spend on a ridiculously expensive membership at to find out the answer to this and other burning questions. So, I'm just going to assume it's fact and say that Ralph Sampson III is very close to signing with the Gophers.
