Jermaine Samuel Girlfriend
If I had a dollar for every person that asks this question, probably I wouldn’t be writing this story; anyways, Jermaine Samuels doesn’t have a girlfriend at the moment. However, a little birdie told us there was a rumor Jermaine Samuels could have been dating fellow Villanova student Katie Pisciotta (Picture below). Others suggested Samuels probably had a thing for Delaney Myrick, (a girl he once drew); but then again these are just rumors.
