Josh Crittle went ahead and committed to Oregon over the Gophers. This makes him a jerk in my book. Unless Sampson signs here, in which Crittle is irrelevant. In fact, he was irrelevant anyway. We don't need him, don't want him. He's too fat.
This makes the Sampson signing even more important. Sampson and Crittle seemed like the top tier big man prospects. The Gophers still have interest from Jarrod Jones and Steve Goins, but they are a step down. Get Sampson.
