Jakarr Sampson picks St. John's again


Post-grad forward Jakarr Sampson (Akron, Ohio/Brewster Academy) ended his recruitment for a second time on Wednesday night and for a second time he committed to St. John's.

The 6-foot-8 athletic wing originally signed with the Red Storm in 2011 before academic issues forced him to spend a fifth year at Brewster Academy. He also considered Baylor, Kansas, Florida and Providence.

Sampson joins guard Felix Balamou (Centereach, N.Y./Our Savior New American) who committed to Steve Lavin and the Johnnies earlier this week.
