Derrick Simmons, 5-11, 190, 4.5, WR, Monmouth Regional HS
No offers as of yet but is being recruited by Iowa, Temple and several Division 1AA schools.
Hofstra - "They are recruiting me and it's close to home."
Days at camp
"I'll go to the one day camp at Hofstra."
Will he make and early decision or a late one?
"I'll probably make a late decision."
"I'll be in the weight room and working. I'll be making some unofficial visits including UNC, Temple and Hofstra."
On offense last year Derrick had 320 yards on 12 catches. On defense Monmouth Regional doesn't keep tackle statistics but Derrick noted that he came up with four interceptions. His most interesting stat however dealt the two punt returns he took back for touchdowns of 65 and 50 yards. Derrick has the ability to elude tacklers both on punt returns and after he catches the pass, that makes him an especially dangerous player in the open field.
Derrick had a sensational camp at PSU and the lack of early offers is surprising. Undoubtedly, he'll be getting a lot of looks once the season starts.
