No, I'm not. John will have the opportunity to make his own decision on where he goes to school. I have simply made contacts to the people who I know through my profession. I did not get my undergrad from Carolina, nor am I a member of the gamecock club. I am finishing my masters degree from USC in a couple of months though.

Default Re: 2016 - John Simpson

John came to both the A&M and the ECU games for unofficial visits, and I will be bringing him to the jawja game this weekend. I couldn't make the A&M because of having a JV game I had to attend, and I didn't make the ECU b/c the wife had friends coming over that we had to entertain for the game. So, this will be my first this season. Really looking forward to coming, and John is very excited to come back.

Quote:
OL John Simpson (6-4 290) of Fort Dorchester is a big reason the Patriots are off to a 3-0 start this season. "His upside is unbelievable," said Fort Dorchester coach Steve LaPrad. "He's tall with long arms, and he's a competitor, tough as nails. He's getting better every day."

The big-timers already are taking notice of Simpson. USC is is first offer while Clemson is showing interest.

"He's been to South Carolina a lot," LaPrad said. "He went to camp there this summer and the Showcase. He went to the A&M game and will be in for the Georgia game. He and coach Elliott are close. He sure likes them. He can't wait to see them every Saturday."

It's been suggested Simpson might be on the fast track to a Gamecock commitment but he says not, at least at this point.

This is what John had to say about the Georgia game visit.

2016 OL John Simpson said that he had an amazing time, that the atmosphere was amazing, and that the players played hard.....per GCC.

ra742002, was he as excited as what everyone said.

South Carolina, Clemson and Wake Forest have also offered.

The Crystal Ball reads 83-percent for South Carolina and 17-percent for Clemson.

The four-star prospect is ranked as the nation's No. 26 guard and the No. 5 recruit in South Carolina in the 2016 class by 247Sports.com Composite Rankings.

If we can get Big John to commit soon it would help tremendously.

Really hoping we can land this 4 star in-state talent.

However, he just got an offer from jawja.
