Simpson Has An Offer; Plans To Set Up Visits

Trevis Simpson, an athletic guard out of Georgia, is a relatively new name, but he already holds a SEC scholarship offer, as well as interest from a number of high major programs.

Trevis Simpson, of Douglas (Ga.) Coffee County, emerged as a high major prospect over the summer, and the recent college attention he's received even caught him off guard.

"It's been crazy," Simpson said of his recruitment. "I'm hearing from a lot of schools, that I never thought that I would hear from."

The 6-foot-4, 175-pound guard won over coaches this summer by showcasing his high-level athleticism and ability to attack the rim, while playing with the Georgia Hawks.

"I feel like I pretty much do everything well," Simpson said. "Right now I'm in the process of fine-tuning my jump shot. I feel I can get to the rim whenever I want to, I just want to get my jump shot where it used to be."

Thus far, Simpson has picked up a scholarship offer from Georgia, but he's also heard form Georgia Tech, USC, Xavier, Minnesota, Miami, Penn State, Cincinnati, Colorado State and North Florida.

"Cincinnati is looking good, Georgia Tech is looking good and so is Georgia," Simpson said when asked about favorites. "I've always have liked Florida too."

College coaches have been on the road for a over a month now, and a number have made their way to Coffee County. Among the schools that have been in are Georgia, Georgia Tech, Cincinnati, North Florida and Colorado State.

Simpson hasn't been on any unofficial visits, but is hoping to take trips to Georgia, Georgia Tech and Cincinnati in the near future.

"We are going to start [taking visits] before the season starts," Simpson said. "I've been working on my game lately, but my dad said whenever we get a break we are going to go out."

Simpson said he's talked with his parents about making an early decision, but didn't mention a timetable for picking his school.
