Sampson visits U

Ralph Sampson III, class of 2008, made an unofficial visit to the U of Minnesota this weekend.

Sampson, son of 7 foot 4 former college and NBA star Ralph Sampson, is rated as the 22nd best center in his class by, and is currently 6-11 with room to grow.

Sampson averaged 14 pts and 11 rebs last year for Northview High School in Duluth, GA, after leading two different schools to state championships the previous two years. Sampson also has a 3.8 GPA, so academic worries are not a concern.

Needless to say, this would be an awesome get for Tubby. Sampson also lists Auburn, Cal, Georgia, Indiana, and NC State among the colleges he's looking at.
