Lakes WR racks up first offer
Sammie Long (Scout.com)
Northwest Recruiting Analyst
Posted Oct 19, 2011
Scout.com learned that Sammie Long, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound receiver prospect from Lakes High School in Lakewood, Wash. has earned his first verbal offer - from Washington. According to Lakes Head Coach Dave Miller, all the colleges coming by the school to look at 2012 prospects have taken an interest in Long - who is currently a junior - but the Huskies were the first to pull the trigger
"He's big, plays physical, runs well and goes up for the ball," Miller said of Long. "He's a good blocker and a hard-working kid. He's a lot like Jermaine (Kearse) with his work ethic and character. Mid-way through his junior season, he's ahead of any receiver I've had, and that includes Reggie (Williams) and Jermaine. Reggie struggled catching the ball at times.
"He runs great routes and he stretches defenses. He doesn't have a ton of great stats right now because we throw to a lot of guys, but when we need him in the red zone we throw it up to him and goes up and gets it."
Per Miller, Long runs around a 50-second 400, and by his senior year he's expected to be running in the 47's. "He's deceptively fast," Miller said of Long's speed. "He's a long strider, but he has good feet."
With Lakes' connection with the local school, Long sounds thrilled to be the next in line to earn a UW offer. "I talked to him this morning, and he told me that U-Dub had offered," Miller said. "I asked him what he thought and he said he was really excited. He said it's his dream school, and it's where he's always wanted to go.
"He's a big-time guy, and he's going to get a lot of offers."
