JaKarr Sampson enjoyed his unofficial visit to Tennessee Wednesday and is now considering four schools.
“He’s considering Tennessee, Baylor, St. John’s and he’s still looking at Kansas,” Don Anderson, Sampson’s AAU coach, said Thursday by phone. “Four schools pretty much.”
The No. 12 small forward in the Class of 2011 out of Akron, Ohio, Sampson is due to register at Brewster (N.H.) Academy Saturday. He will join a loaded team under coach Jason Smith that also features Naadir Tharpe, Elijah Carter and Markus Kennedy. Carter is on an unofficial today (Thursday) to Seton Hall.
Anderson said the 6-foot-8, 193-pound Sampson had hoped to take another swing through St. John’s Friday en route to Brewster but doubts it can happen.
