ESPN Article On Ra'Shaad Samples

Postby DanFreibergerForHeisman » Fri Feb 12, 2021 9:45 am

Nice read about Ra'Shaad Samples and this year's recruiting class on ESPN today.

HE SHOULD HAVE been a priority for SMU.

In 2013, Ra'Shaad Samples was a four-star receiver at Dallas' Skyline High School. Playing for his father, Reginald, a Dallas-area football legend, he had an encyclopedic knowledge of Texas football and grew up with a love of the city's football culture. While Samples fielded offers from Ohio State, USC and Notre Dame, as well as big in-state programs Texas and Texas A&M, he said SMU assumed he wouldn't want to play there and did not pursue him.

"I can remember one time in four years SMU [coaches] stepping foot on our campus," Samples said. "And I had never been on SMU's campus my whole time in high school. I would've loved to have stayed in my city."

Yes. And it makes me want to cry with joy that we finally get it.

The question will become "can we pony up" and keep Ra'Shaad on the staff here for years to come with increased responsibilities year after year?
