Meet Jakarr Sampson

You’ve probably heard the name Jakarr Sampson recently, but it didn’t involve the Cats. The St. Vincent – St. Mary’s star was the headlining piece of Steve Lavin’s 10-man recruiting class at St. John’s, but has now landed at Brewster Academy with UK targets Mitch McGary and TJ Warren after failing to qualify. The 6’7″ Sampson, who was Scout.com’s eleventh-best small forward in the class of 2011, will most likely reclassify to 2012.

And because he’s with McGary and Warren, UK’s coaches checked in on him yesterday while in New Hampshire. A new name for 2012? Maybe.

Either way, he’s good.

    He may be good, but based on his failure to qualify at St. John’s he may not be worth the risk. I hope UK is done with marginal qualifiers. We don’t need them, and there is too much risk that the NCAA will decide 2 years after we win #8 that the kid cheated on a 5th-grade phys ed test.

    He can dunk, what else can he do?

    Several associates noted he was into distinctive and easily recognizable 2-D fractal shapes and complex quadratic polynomials (which, to the trained mind, can provide infinite more wood than an overdose of Sildenafil citrate).

    I’m gonna start making videos that break the kids game down a bit more. Well, nevermind, I don’t have the time or the resources.

    I’m guessing this kid isn’t from Alabama. If he were, he would have easily been eligible.
