With 158 tackles and nine sacks in his varsity career, Sampson Niu has honored the lineage of wearing the number 55 as a linebacker. Niu's father played alongside Junior Seau at Oceanside High School, and now Sampson is a direct replica down to the fist pump after a tackle for loss.
After 27 colleges battled for his services, Niu chose the University of Oregon, where he will potentially play alongside 2013 Silver Pigskin winner Royce Freeman and finalist Darren Carrington II. Niu will play in the U.S. Army All American Bowl on January 7th.
