The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Sampson has totaled 199 yards and five touchdowns on 27 rushing attempts in 2023. He has also recorded three receptions for 38 yards and one touchdown.
Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel discussed Sampson’s performance in the Vols’, 45-14, win versus UTSA.
“Dylan has been a leader on the practice field and a leader in the locker room,” Heupel said. “Competitive and willing to do whatever to help the team. When he has the ball in his hands he’s done a good job of reading it. Delivering blocks. He made a backdoor cut tonight, his flow over the top happens. He’s really efficient in what he’s done. He’s going to continue to go up, too.”
