Detroit (MI) East English Village center Tyrone Sampson, Jr. signed with Fresno State today. He had been committed to Syracuse for a while before rescinding that pledge.
It's been a strange odyssey for Sampson, whom many Michigan fans wanted the Wolverines to offer. He's a 4-star, the #7 center in the country, and #346 overall. Indiana, Louisville, Michigan State (okay, I can't blame him for not signing with that dumpster fire), Ole Miss, and others all offered him, but his recruitment dragged out over a week past National Signing Day. Now he's headed to Fresno State, which doesn't exactly get much of a national spotlight.
Something is funky with that recruitment. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the kid, but the offers don't really match the ranking, and the ranking doesn't match with Fresno State, whose next highest ranked signee is #776 overall in the 247 Composite. I'll be interested to see how his career plays out at Fresno.
