Tim Simon Holds Two SEC Offers

Tim Simon helped lead the Cordova Blue Devils to a 3A state championship in 2007, and the game changing running back is already receiving SEC offers. Simon tells us the latest news.

"I went to Junior Day at Alabama, and it was real good," Tim Simon said. "Everything was real nice there. The weight room, and the stadium were very nice."

"I do not plan to go to anymore junior days this year, and I can't participate in summer camps because I am recovering from knee surgery. I hurt my knee in the Calera game, and I had to play through the season with it. I had to have the cartilage repaired in it, but I will be ready to go next fall."

"I am planning to visit as many schools as I can this summer."

"I have written offers from Mississippi State, and one from Kentucky. MSU wants me to play running back, and Kentucky wants me as a linebacker."

Kentucky and Mississippi State aren't the only two schools showing interest in the talented playmaker.

"Auburn says they are going to offer me this weekend, while Alabama and Georgia are staying in close contact with me. I am getting calls and letters from all the SEC schools," he said.

"Somewhere around 23 or 24 schools are contacting me regularly."

Simon rushed 176 times in 2007 for 1,566 yards and 33 touchdowns. He had 38 touchdowns total.

Simon is expected to move to linebacker for his senior season, and at 6-2, 210 pounds it could prove a good move for the Cordova phenom.

"Some schools are recruiting me to play linebacker, but I prefer to play running back. I think that's what I do the best," Simon stated.

Tim Simon doesn't have a favorite school, but he shares the top five schools he is interested in at this time.

"I like Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Mississippi State, LSU and Kentucky," he said.
