The offer list is impressive and the player is impressive as Sam Simpson of Henry Clay High School in Lexington, Kentucky visited the Bearcats on Thursday night and walked away with an official offer from Brian Kelly and his staff.
With offers from Auburn, Duke, Kentucky, Stanford and Tennessee, Simpson is considered the top center prospect in the country by Scout.com and has shown the ability to snap in shotgun with both his left and right hand. The other area that Simpson excels is the classroom and that also translates onto the field as he's able to handle making line calls.
Simpson stands 6-foot-5, 260-pounds and will be a prospect the Bearcats will work hard to sign.
Bearcat Insider will have more on Sam Simpson later this weekend.
