Bad news for Carolina is he is pretty open to all the schools that have offered thus far, which includes: Nebraska, NC State, Syracuse, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia in addition to the Tar Heels.
College recruiters are still tossing around ideas of where to play the playmaker. His size (6-1, 208 pounds) along with his speed (4.55 forty-yard dash time) plus his football instincts (91 tackles his junior year) make him very attractive at a lot of positions.
"Some people like him as a safety, others like him as a weakside linebacker," stated Beatty.
Regardless of position, the coaching staff that receives the LOI from Simmons on signing day 2005 will add a defensive playmaker to their roster.
"Deveon is explosive," Beatty said. "He is a ball hawk; he is always around the ball. He is a game changer on defense."
While starring on both sides of the ball for Landstown, Simmons recorded 91 tackles, 68 assists, 41 tackles for a loss, and 6 sacks last year.
