New Bern (N.C.) consensus four-star defensive lineman Keith Sampson Jr. released his top-10 list Wednesday on Twitter.

Those ten schools are Alabama, Duke, East Carolina, Florida State, Georgia, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Ohio State, South Carolina and Virginia.

Clemson is not in the top 10 for Keith Sampson

Keith Sampson did not include Clemson in his top 10 schools despite speaking highly of the program earlier this year. However, the Tigers have not offered Sampson an offer at this moment.

Sampson was a guest of Clemson for its season-opening game against Georgia in Charlotte.

“It was a really good experience,” Sampson told Clemson Sports. “The game was way more intense than what people may want to say because it was a great defensive battle between two good teams. If we are being honest, if Clemson doesn’t give that interception, it would’ve been 3-3.”

Another team Keith Sampson visited but did not includes on his list was Virginia Tech. Sampson was in Blacksburg, Va., this past weekend to watch the Hokies take on Notre Dame.

He also visited NC State earlier this month.
