"It was an awesome visit," said 6-5 280 Andrew Sampson. "We met with the academics person (Jean Boyd) and that's the part that impressed me the most. I want to major in Kinesiology and Arizona State has a great department for that major. I also got to meet some Kinesiology teachers…we had tour of the campus, got to talk to the head coach, OL coach, and strength coach."
Sampson who also visited hometown Colorado State was asked to compare his trips to both schools. According to the lineman, there's one aspect that sticks out favorably in his mind and it is what is putting ASU at the top of his suitors list. "ASU is number one right now," he remarked. "Both programs are similar and are both striving for national championships. But Arizona State's academics are better and they really made a strong impression on me."
The lineman noted that he's being recruited by Sun Devil safeties coach Matt Lubick, who has been in contact with him virtually every day. "He's a real laid back funny guy…I enjoy talking to him."
Sampson received a scholarship offer from Utah earlier this month, and stated that this is another school he may unofficially visit. "I'm not close to making a decision," he said. "I'm probably gonna take official visits to all the schools that offered me and make a decision sometime during the season. I do want to see more schools before I commit."
The lineman also has an offer from Washington, and he mentioned UCLA or Cal as possible destinations for official visits in the fall. Sampson finished his junior campaign being selected 2nd team all-state, and all-conference.
