"I had a great time. It was fun down there. The game was crazy and I really enjoyed it. I did not expect the fans to be like that. It is a big time football city," said Mikell Simpson. "This was my third visit. I have been to Virginia and Michigan State. Alabama has been the best visit that I have been on. The facilities and environment are great and the players were all real cool," Simpson added.
The Alabama coaching staff is looking to sign a big time running back or two.
After making a strong impression on Simpson, they may have found one.
"I was able to meet all of the coaching staff. They were all good guys and
very upfront. I was able to meet Coach Sparky Woods, my recruiting coach. He is
really cool. He is also my position coach, and I could really see myself being
around him. Coach Shula is a great guy. He really understands the recruiting
process. He told me they really want a few running backs, and I could have a
chance to play early," said Simpson.
During his visit, Simpson was able to hang out with a few players.
"My player host was Tim Castille. We had a good time. We met up with a few
of the other players at a party and just had a good time."
After an impressive visit, Simpson plans to wait before he makes any decision.
"There are several things I am going to have to look at before making my
decision. I am going to sit down with my parents after my visits and talk with
them about each school. I don't think a decision will come until signing
day," said Simpson.
Simpson will take his next official visit to UCLA on December 3-5. He is unsure
where or if he will a fifth visit.
