How Long Will The Recruiting Process Play Out for Darrell Simpson?

Darrell Simpson talks about some of his top offers and gives a timeline for his decision.

Darrell Simpson, a 6-foot-7, 336-pound offensive lineman from Justin (Texas) Northwest is still hoping to see a few programs this spring as he ties to sort through a national list of offers. 

"I know I am trying to get back up to Ohio State, LSU, probably Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and I already went to TCU," Simpson said.  


Now that he is back at Texas A&M it is offensive line coach Jim Turner at Texas A&M who is now building up the relationship with Simpson, but Simpson knows that the Aggies are known to produce NFL O-linemen.  

"I just got to get back and get comfortable with coach Turner, since he has just came back in. I just got to get comfortable with him. I just know coach Turner has put a lot of people into the NFL and he knows how to work with his players and get them in there."

Two programs -- Ohio State and Oklahoma -- have both put their best foot forward in the Scout Top 100 OT's recruitment. 

"I like how OU is building up their facilities and trying to make it bigger than what it has," Simpson explained.

"I like Ohio State. I like their campus and it is just a peaceful place to see. It was beautiful. Everything was right there ad there was no walk around it was just right across the street, everything."

Simpson is in no rush to make a decision and it may play all the way out until the end. 

"I think it will be played out until signing day," Simpson said when asked about a timeline for his commitment. 

As a junior in 2016, Simpson helped lead Justin Northwest to a 10-2 record while earning Second Team All-District and Honorable Mention All-State honors.
