When LSU's third year linebacker Antoine Sampah joined the Tigers from Virginia's Woodbridge High, he arrived as the state's #1 overall prospect in 2020 coming back from a knee injury during his senior season.
Playing in 4 games across 2020, Sampah's pandemic-effected freshman year was a good spot for the linebacker to settle in, get cozy and really start to take that next step in his development. Throughout 2021's off-season, Antoine enjoyed a strong Spring camp, rising in the eyes of LSU coaches, fans or media members alike, culminating in an interception during his standout Spring Game performance.
