Five-Star 2023 Wide Receiver Shelton Sampson Jr. Picks Up Penn State Offer

With an upset victory over then-No. 12 Wisconsin last Saturday, the top-ranked 2022 recruiting class according to 247Sports and five-star offensive lineman Alex Birchmeier already committed, life is pretty good for Penn State football.

It just might be getting better, with head coach James Franklin looking to continue producing top-ranked recruiting classes.

Five-star wide receiver Shelton Sampson Jr. from Catholic-B.R. High School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana picked up an offer from PSU — with wide receivers coach Taylor Stubblefield and assistant offensive recruiting coordinator Chris Mahon leading the way. Sampson (6-foot-4, 181 pounds) is one of the top recruits in the class of 2023.

With offers from LSU, Arizona State, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Southern Miss, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Tulane, Florida Atlantic and Virginia, Sampson is in high demand among schools from major Power 5 conferences.

According to 247Sports, Sampson is the 30th-ranked recruit in the nation, checking in as the fourth-ranked wide receiver and the second-ranked recruit from Louisiana. Rivals rates him as the 18th-ranked recruit in the nation, slotting his as the second-ranked wide receiver and recruit from Louisiana. Penn State appears to face an uphill battle to earn his signature, with both sites projecting in-state LSU to land his signature.

With his junior season of high school just getting underway at Catholic, expect to continue hearing about Sampson’s exploits.
