Recruiting: Simek Getting Plenty Of Visitors

Last time we checked with standout lineman Denton Simek of Prague, Okla, he had just turned 17 years old and had just picked up his ninth scholarship offer. We caught up with him again on Sunday and the number of offers hasn't changed. That's no big deal but the schools that have offered are having no trouble finding Prague on the map.

"There's nothing really new going on," said Simek. "Texas Tech, Arizona, and Missouri were in last week to watch me work out. You know we worked out inside on the weights and then we go outside and do our cones, ropes, agilities, drills like that."

No doubt that the coaches coming by included former OSU player and assistant coach Josh Henson, who is now coaching at Missouri, and former OU player and Texas Tech assistant coach Seth Littrell, who is coaching at Arizona.

"It's kind of fun to see the coaches coming through," added Simek, who has offers from Oklahoma State, Missouri, Texas Tech, Arizona, Kansas, Arkansas, and Vanderbilt.

"I'm into lifting right now and track. I'll know for sure on Monday but I think I qualified for state in the shot put. We got our regional track meet in. We were on the bus an hour waiting but we got it in."

Simek seems to be taking recruiting in stride. He did say this summer he plans on going to a one-day camp at Oklahoma State and also some others.

"I think I'll go to OU's camp because I have in the past," he said. "My team is going to some camps at Emporia (Kan.) State and maybe to Tahlequah (Okla.)."

Nine offers is pretty good and considering who the offers are from puts him as one of the more highly recruited offensive linemen in the Midlands region.
