Deveon Simmons has a load of offers to choose from already.

"I have somewhere between 20-25 offers," said Simmons. "Georgia, Florida, Pittsburgh, Michigan, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina are a few off the top of my head.  A lot of other schools are still recruiting me, but I have pretty much already narrowed my list down."

With that being said, who has made Simmons' Top Five?

"Georgia, Florida, Virginia Tech, N.C. State and Pitt. Those are the only five schools I am really looking at."

What separates those five from the rest of the pack?

What will it come down to when making his decision?

"Basically one thing: early playing time."

Is their a commitment coming anytime soon?

"Yes sir, I will commit before my senior year starts. Probably sometime towards the end of July or in August."
