“It went very well,” Sampson told The Michigan Insider. “I talked to a college professor and took a tour of the campus. I then watched the team practice and after practice was over, I talked with former East English player, Khalid Hill, who is currently a player at Michigan. He was basically telling me what it takes to become a great student athlete and I could do it. I am tight with him.”

The 6-4, 304-pounder really got the full Maize and Blue tour this go around, which has his interest quickly rising in the Wolverines.

“Extremely (interested),” said Sampson. “Because it seems like a great place to further my education and also because the offensive lineman coach.”

Despite an Akron offer and interest from several other programs, Sampson still hopes to land a Michigan offer in the future.

“It would mean a lot because they would think I'm capable of going there and playing,” said Sampson. “It would humble me a lot, but also make me hungrier to become better each and every day, so when I go there, then I will be a great offensive lineman.”

At the moment, Sampson has no further visits planned
