Three-star WR Long finds a new home 

February, 2, 2013
Three-star wide receiver Sammie Long (Lakewood, Wash./Lakes) thought his future was set early in the recruiting process. He committed to in-state Washington last March. However, the two recently parted ways, and Long had to consider new options.

In the last two months, he took official visits to Montana (Dec. 7), Idaho (Jan. 11), Colorado State (Jan. 18) and Eastern Washington (Jan. 25). Friday, he announced for Jim McElwain's Rams.

Nevada also offered the 6-foot-2, 190-pound senior. Programs such as California, Georgia Tech, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA and Washington State showed interest.
