"Coach Muschamp spent about 30 minutes here yesterday," said Wayne Peace, Lakeland Christian's coach. "Coach O'Brien is coming tomorrow. Georgia Southern will be here on Friday. I know Virginia will be here as well.
"It's funny, two years ago we had zero coaches come through during the spring. This season we had 53. And things will be much more busy over the coming months."
Simmons, 5-foot-11, 186-pounds, had a good junior campaign, especially considering he missed nearly all of last season with a knee injury. In nine games he rushed for 1,286 yards.
"You know, I think T.J. is a back that can fit into any scheme," Peace said. "I suspect that he would get to 210, 215-pounds in a hurry once he gets to college. This is a kid that can run out of an "I" or be a spread guy. He can do it all."
Simmons was most recently offered by Penn State. The Nittany Lions did that a few weeks ago. Florida, Ohio State, Miami, Louisville, USF, UCF, and Wake Forest are some of the schools that have offered him a scholarship as well.
Simmons is the No. 49 ranked running back in the 2015 class.
