Finding the right opportunity is very important for one junior college signal caller.

After spending two years at Louisville, Matt Simms is looking for the perfect home for him for the next two seasons. With only two years of eligibility left, making sure he makes the right decision is very important.

While Simms thoroughly enjoyed his official visit to Tennessee this past weekend, he isn't going to rush into a decision based just on emotions.

"It was unbelievable there," Simms told InsideTennessee.com. "I'm really speechless on how I feel about my trip and the university there. It's unexplainable."

Simms is also considering Colorado State, Mississippi State and Western Michigan, and will sit down with family before making a final decision.

"It will be really hard for any other school to compete with Tennessee for my services," Simms said. "I'm not sure if it will be Tennessee or not for me. I should know in the next couple of weeks."

Simms plans to enroll at the school of his choice in January.

"You can feel and see the tradition of the program walking around the campus," Simms said. "Everyone is very passionate about their football in the South. To get the chance to play in the SEC is amazing. Everything is always about timing; hopefully the timing at Tennessee will be perfect for me."

Did Simms get an offer from Tennessee over the weekend?

"As far as I know that's what happened," Simms said. "I'm hoping and thinking that's where I will be this spring."

Simms is currently dealing with a broken hand that kept him out of his last couple of junior college ballgames at El Camino in California.
