"I have set one official visit to UCLA for December 3-5. Three other visits I most likely will go on is to Virginia, Alabama, and Nebraska," said Mikell Simpson.
Of the four schools Simpson plans to visit, he does not have an overall
"They are all equal right now. I will not have a favorite until I get a
chance to visit the campuses and maybe attend some games to see what the
atmosphere is like."
The star running back knows what he likes about his favorites.
UCLA: "I like that they have great tradition. I know they have a great
education program and I have never been out west. I would like to see how it is
Virginia: "Virginia is in the ACC and I think it is the toughest
conference in the country right now. They are a team that is on the uprise and
they are looking for a running back. They have one junior and two seniors right
now. I know their backs are involved a lot."
Alabama: "I don't really know too much about Alabama. They are in the
SEC and that is a great league to play in. I have talked to their coaches. They
told me how their running back last year lead the SEC in rushing and I think
they lead the SEC this year in rushing as well. I am really looking forward to
Nebraska: "They are always a powerhouse. Nebraska can always have a team
in contention for a National Championship. I like the way they are now using the
West Coast Offense."
Simpson will look at a few aspects before making his college decision.
"I want to go where I feel the most comfortable. I want to be able to
contribute and I want to fit in well. I will wait until after my official visits
before I make a decision," said Simpson.
"All the coaches that I have said were my favorites called me. The only
other two schools that have called have been Michigan State and Ohio State. I
will probably take my fifth official visit to one of those schools."
Harrisburg High School is off to a rocky start, and Simpson is hoping things
are going to improve.
"The season is not going too good. We are 1-3. Hopefully, we will start
to turn the season around. I have not been seeing the ball too much this year. I
am still playing running back. I have not been able to attend any games because
most of our games are on Saturdays," said Simpson.
