Default 2016 - John Simpson - Clemson

http://www.hudl.com/athlete/o/151345...ights/74687375

John is an Offensive tackle at Stall HS in North Charleston. John attended the OL/DL camp at USC during the summer and really enjoyed his time there. Coach Elliot and Coach Sands spent some time talking with him. John measures 6'4, 260 lbs. He wrestles and wears a size 18 shoe at 15 years old. He's going to be a great one because of his size and work ethic! He loves the game.

thanks green. I personally coach this young man, so I can't take credit for his athleticism, but I can tell you one thing: he is a phenomenal young man. I can only hope my son grows up to be as generous and trustworthy and respectable as he is. He does get a bit of a nasty streak on the field, I would just like to see him grow more into it.

Noticed on a few plays in that video that after he disengages from his first assignment he let up on the play. Probably just because of his age but I'd like to see his motor continue until the whistle.

Very athletic for a kid that's still growing. Can't wait to see him as a senior. Love that he wrestles. He'll learn a lot of hand techniques. He should be highly rated as a senior.

I found this on 24/7 bolts:

Offensive lineman John Simpson (North Charleston, S.C./Fort Dorchester) said he will no longer be announcing January 9 at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

"I want to take my official visits first," Simpson said.

He's already been to LSU for an official. He has three open weekends in January to take the rest.


"Clemson, Florida and maybe Alabama are the ones I'm trying to set up," Simpson said.

He said he spoke with Crimson Tide offensive line coach Mario Cristobal Saturday morning.

"I like how they win at Alabama and their tradition," Simpson said.

Simpson doesn't have dates lined up for those official visits yet.


Simpson hopes to make his college choice shortly after his official visits are done.

"I'm not trying to take it all the way to signing day, but I might if that's what it takes," Simpson said.

Simpson said Florida, Clemson and LSU are sticking out right now, tied on top.

The Crystal Ball reads 67-percent for Clemson and 33-percent for South Carolina.

Simpson said he may visit South Carolina in January as well.

"I'm not sure if I'll take an official visit (to South Carolina)," Simpson said. "I know I'll go there sometime to meet the new staff. Keeping (Gamecocks offensive line) coach (Shawn) Elliott there helps, too. I took a picture with coach (Will) Muschamp yesterday (at the state title game in Columbia)."

Simpson added his thoughts on each of his main contenders.

Florida: "(Gators offensive line) coach (Mike) Summers came to see me. I hear from him every week. He stays in touch. That's big to hear from the offensive line coach once a week. I like that."

Clemson: "I like the atmosphere and how they win. They have a young team so they should be winning for a while."

LSU: "It's like family. The coaches treat me like I'm one of their kids."

Simpson said LSU, South Carolina and Florida stopped by his school last week.

He said none of his finalists have sent their head coaches by for in-home visits yet.

The four-star recruit is ranked as the nation's No. 8 guard and the No. 2 prospect in South Carolina in the 2016 class by 247Sports.com Composite Rankings.

Sorry for the copy-paste but I couldn't get the link to work.

I agree JD. He is also a wrestler, so that takes some weight away during the winter/spring. I told him if he wants to play big boy ball he needs to be 280 by the start of his junior year. He has incredible feet and hands and also really long arms. His frame could hold 320 easily.

Young man received an invite to Clem5on's junior day this weekend. Happy for him, but he's not able to go because of transportation issues.

Hey, can I volunteer to help with John? My name is John too, I'm an R.B. Stall High grad, Class of 73' and have a degree from USC! I just didn't get quiet that tall. But I did poll fault that high ... but barely ;-) Correct me if wrong, but I don't think we've had an R.B. Stall player since my good buds Joe McGregor, also a Class of 73 grad, a 6'5" DT who lived down the Street from me in Hunley Park.

Probably need to be careful with that, and be sure the Compliance Office and his area recruiters clear it.

The rules involving boosters, "pre-existing" relationships, and people simply associated with a program by being a grad can be hazy.

I'd hate to see us have to back off a possibly promising player because of an arcane rule involving helping coach a player.
