…”I love him man”. In a recent video about his recruitment, JaKarr Sampson discussed his Kansas visit, his relationship with St. John’s, and of course how Ed Cooley is a clown but a hard recruiter who is recruiting him “super hard”.
Is it me, or does JaKarr’s smile get even bigger when talking about Ed Cooley?
According to Dave Telep of ESPN, Sampson will be giving an official visit to Providence soon.
While Sampson won’t divulge an order to his list – he says he couldn’t decide today – he did acknowledge one coach who is busting his tail, working harder than the rest. “Probably [Providence] coach [Ed] Cooley,” Sampson said. “He’s been relentless.”
Providence has used its geographical advantage – it’s closest to Brewster – all year long as Cooley’s been the most visible head coach in Sampson’s recruitment.
You get the feeling that Sampson could be the kind of guy who hits it off with the players and makes his decision based on gut feel. All of the teams on his list like to score, some would use his length better than others but each could use a guy with his skill set.
