Simpson is a top 40 player in the country and the No. 2 player in Tennessee for 2022, so he is a big name in the south. He is a signal caller with a deep offer list.
He still says he is wide open to all schools, but most feel early that it could come down to Alabama, Auburn, Clemson and Tennessee. He grew up a fan of Ole Miss and he was back in Oxford over the weekend too, so the Rebels have to be considered a contender also. Schools like Oklahoma and Texas A&M are in contact with Simpson almost daily as well.
Simpson’s father, Jason Simpson, is the head coach at Tennessee-Martin, so he knows the game inside and out. It shows on the field. He has great pocket awareness, he has a feel for the game and he is strong in the fundamentals of the game. As a passer, the ball comes out quick and he throws a very catchable football. His deep ball is a strength, and although he is not a true dual-threat quarterback, he has great mobility and can buy time in the pocket.
For all saying that you can't let Pruitt and company go because of recruits, here you've got a declaration that you likely won't even get certain prospects if you keep Pruitt and company because of the on the field product.
Sadness, madness, and apathy are ever present for the current UT football fan.
