Samuel setting up his summer plans

Long Beach Poly (Calif.) defensive back Colin Samuel is nearing double digit scholarship offers and is planning a couple of cross country visits over the summer.

Colin Samuel has made a smooth transition to Poly after playing his junior year at Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany. The long, athletic corner, who measured in at 6-3, 190 pounds at the SoCal NIKE Camp, is one of the more intriguing players in the West Coast class.

He's not just tall, he can run and is a good all around athlete. He'll get more physical as he fills out and once he improves his ball skills, has a chance to be a very good player at the next level.

Samuel's most recent offers came in from SMU and New Mexico earlier in the week and he's starting to get his summer schedule together.

"Things are definitely getting exciting for me," Samuel said. "Things have picked up and hopefully that continues the rest of the summer. Right now, I'm trying to figure out what camps I'll doing and where I'll take my visits.

"I know I'll do the USC and UCLA camps for sure and I might do California as well. I like all three of those schools a lot. I'm most likely going to visit Illinois and Boston College as well. They both have offered so I want to go and check them out."

Samuel said he has no plans to make an early commitment and plans to take his official visits during the fall season before making his decision.
