Allen Sampson Commits to UH (w/UPDATE)

Stephen Tsai writes that Allen Sampson will become a Warrior.
"I know a lot of people go to Hawai‘i for the scenery and weather, but I fell in love with the program," Sampson said.
Sampson, who is 5 feet 8 and 155 pounds, said he can run 40 yards in 4.38 seconds. A scout timed him at 4.39 seconds.Last season, he caught 56 passes for 867 yards and 11 touchdowns. He averaged 31.6 yards per kickoff return and 14.18 yards per punt return .
Woot woot! Congrats to Allen. Here are some of his highlights.

UPDATE (2/2/10): Tsai profiles Sampson.
Accompanied by his mother, Sampson completed his UH visit Sunday. Yesterday in Tampa, he was making plans for a return trip to paradise.

"I love the coaches and the program and the offense they run," said Sampson, who was recruited by quarterbacks coach Nick Rolovich. "I really like Coach Rolo. He's laid back. He's funny. He's so cool."

By signing his letter of intent with UH tomorrow, Sampson is spurning offers from Toledo, Syracuse, Florida Atlantic and Florida International.

"I think some teams backed off because of his size, but he's a special one," Plant coach Robert Weiner said. "He can do a lot of things with the football."
