An Oct. 3 announcement released by the school stated that Simmons would be unable to enroll at Washington because he had not met the academic requirements for a junior college transfer. Upon receiving additional information regarding his academic record this week it was determined that Simmons was eligible.
Simmons attended Bellevue Community College briefly in the fall of 2000
before opting to leave school to begin a full-time job. At the time, he did
not properly withdraw which resulted in grades that subsequently affected
his athletic eligibility. After contact by Simmons, academic staff at BCC
reviewed his case and determined that their records should be changed to
reflect his withdrawal from the college. The corrected BCC record now makes
Simmons NCAA eligible.
Simmons, who has been auditing classes at UW since the fall quarter began
Sept. 29, officially enrolled as a full-time student at Washington Friday.
The 6-foot-5 guard is eligible to participate with the Husky basketball team
during the upcoming 2003-04 season. Simmons has a junior standing at UW with
two years of athletic eligibility remaining.
A product of Seattle's Garfield High School, Simmons attended Green River
(Wash.) Community College last year. He averaged 29.8 points and 9.2
rebounds in 2003.
