Steve Lavin Lands a Potential McDonald's All-America Recuit

Keith BennettCorrespondent ISeptember 17, 2010

St. John's hoops coach Steve Lavin receive a verbal commitment from 6-8, 195-pound forward JaKarr Sampson  of Brewster Academy in Wolfesboro, N.H. Sampson is a potential McDonald's All-America ranked between 25 and 45 in most national scouting services. 'I picked St. John's because I felt very close to the staff," said Simpson, who picked the Red Storm over Tennessee, Baylor and Louisville. "If I was going to be away from home I needed to be very comfortable with the coaches." Lavin has already snagged ESPNU 100 SF Maurice Haekless (Queens, N.Y./South Kent) out of his own backyard. Lavin went home to land California native Dwayne Polee in the 2010 class. The future is a shining star for the Red Storm.
