Of course profiling a player that is an incoming freshman that has never played a varsity game is risky, but Alliance cornerback Malcolm Sampson certainly impressed this summer.
Sampson, 5-foot-10, 160-pounds, shined in two separate 7on7 events, playing both wide receiver and cornerback. Although early in his development, Sampson appears to have a similar skill set to Massillon's Gareon Conley, a Michigan commit.
"He has a long way to go, but we are going to put him out there and let him play," Alliance head coach Mike Schott stated. "He's earned the right to play with the way he is performing. I don't think he's going to be intimidated by older players. He has a great future ahead of him, because he's a great kid who works very hard."
It's accepted that he will need to add strength and bulk, but Sampson does have the speed and quickness needed to play at the high school level.
"I am looking forward to seeing how I stack up," Sampson said. "We have a chance to be really good as a team, and I just want to contribute to us winning. As far as colleges go, I root for the Ohio schools, Ohio State and Cincinnati."
