    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Former St. John’s signee JaKarr Sampson will take an official visit to Baylor this weekend, according to a tweet from Brewster (N.H.) coach Jason Smith.

    Baylor coach Scott Drew, Kentucky coach John Calipari, Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin and Providence coach Ed Cooley have also been through Brewster in recent days.

    Smith also tweeted that St. John’s assistant coach Mike Dunlap will come through Wednesday.

    Don Anderson, Sampson’s AAU coach, said the following schools were showing interest: Florida, Georgetown, Kansas, Baylor, Kentucky, Memphis, Providence, Louisville, St. John’s and Pittsburgh.

    Sampson, a native of Akron, Ohio, was one of three St. John’s signees declared academically ineligible by the NCAA. He then opted to re-open his recruitment.
