Is he good enough to compete in track and field in college? The answer is absolutely, meaning he might get double-teamed in recruiting between football and Dave Smith's ever growing and improving track program. I kind of like a 22-10 in the long jump.
But let's try football first where he runs really well, somewhere between 4.5 and 4.7 depending in who you want to believe. He plays on defense with an attitude that has him on the edge of head hunting, something he will need to curtail while keeping the attitude that goes with it.
He picks off a pass playing short to medium centerfield in the red zone against Rogers Heritage and then winds his way through the offense and scores a near 100-yard touchdown return. He looks like he could wind up a star linebacker in the Oklahoma State defensive scheme, at least he has the hybrid talent to play it but is also athletic enough to stay at safety.
Simmons has offers from Arizona State, Illinois, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas, Louisville, Minnesota, Missouri, and Nebraska. If I were to guess I would think an offer from Oklahoma State could be in the works. He would appear to be versatile enough (also a pretty good receiver on offense) that you would want him around.
