Golden State LB Looking to Visit Michigan

Pacific Palisades (Calif.) Charter junior linebacker Alec Simpson talks Michigan interest, possible visit and more.

Pacific Palisades (Calif.) Charter junior linebacker Alec Simpson is a prospect on the rise in the Golden State. And his momentum picked up some more on Saturday, when Michigan reached to gauge his interest in the Wolverines.

“I actually just started to talk to Michigan on Saturday when Coach Chris Patridge talked to me on Twitter,” Simpson said. “I really like Michigan. It’s a Big Ten program coached by one of my favorite by one of my favorite coaches of all-time – Jim Harbaugh.”

And if the Wolverines were to offer the 6-foot-3, 205-pounder, he says it would be a “dream” offer.

“It would be a dream offer,” Simpson said. “It would be huge. It’s the Big House man. I have family in the Midwest. So that would be cool to be near them. I have 30 cousins that live in Oak Park, Ill.

“I definitely would like to visit. I would look at the great stadium atmosphere, great college life, my preferred major and their great coaching staff. Also, [Michigan] has all four seasons, which I know is in the Midwest.”

As far as a favorite, Simpson says it’s way too early in his recruitment to start naming off leaders.

“My recruitment is wide open to all schools,” Simpson said. “I currently have an offer from Nevada. I see myself making my decision either before my senior season or on signing day.”

Simpson says he is also planning on taking visits to Oregon, Washington and Colorado this year.
