Tanner Samson to Elon

6-foot-4 shooting guard Tanner Samson (Littleton, Colo.) has committed to Elon's 2012 recruiting class, the Colorado Chaos Basketball Club announced on Monday.

Samson chose Elon over Montana, Denver, Pepperdine, Utah, UC Santa Barbara, Wyoming and South Dakota.

"Samson felt a very strong connection to the Elon coaching staff, especially head coach Matt Matheny," Chaos President David Matthews said in a press release.

Samson is the fourth player from the Chaos to commit to a Division I program, joining center Josh Scott (Colorado), Kaileb Rodriguez (California) and Nate Engesser (Denver).
