Tigers Still in Picture for Simon?

The Clemson Tigers remain in the mix for this talented LB/RB after an in-home visit Thursday.

Scout.com's No. 32 strong side linebacker was scheduled to visit Clemson this weekend, unofficially, so his mother could see the school in person, but those plans have changed.

"Tim has decided to cancel his Kentucky visit," added Cordova head coach, Pete Bush said.

The Ole Miss commits' visit to Tennessee looks to be in jeopardy too.

"I do not think Tim is going on anymore visits. We sat down and talked about it, and there is no reason he should be taking these visits if he is not going to go to school there.

"He is pretty set on Ole Miss, but Clemson is still in the picture somewhat. They came by last night and had a good talk with Tim, but he told me that Ole Miss still feels right. It gets confusing for these kids, so I can certainly understand what he is going through."

The 6' 2", 210 pound tailback/linebacker out of Cordova led his team to the State Championship game for the second season in a row. He rushed for 2,969 yards and 38 TD's on offense. He was also just as effective on defense, as Simon totaled 136 tackles and three interceptions.

Simon was named the 3A Back of the Year, Fox Ch 6 Player of the Year, Birmingham News Player of the Year, and was nine votes short from winning Mr. Football in the state of Alabama.

Simon visited Clemson officially two weeks ago.
