Junior Focus- Michael Simpers

Lonestar RB has the Cats in his early list of favorites.

Michael Simpers from Elkins HS in Sugarland, is not your prototypical RB. At 5-foot-9 and 163 pounds, many programs assume he is too small to play running back.

"Well I think everyone just sees your stats. there is more to me then just my stats," said Simpers.

Very early still in the recruiting process, Simpers who looks to break out of the labeling of smaller back says that Kansas State is amoung his early favorites.

"Kansas State is one of my favorites. I would like to go down there and check the campus out and you know they had (Darren) Sproles there. Right now Kansas State is pretty high on my list."

Simpers who will line up at RB for the Knights this season is looking to add more wieght on his frame this off-season and work on his speed.
