The top lineman in the state is staying home
according to Prep Redzone, announced his commitment to San Diego State last Tuesday., the top offensive lineman in the state
Simmons goes to Helix (La Mesa) and staying close to home was important to him.
“San Diego State recruited me harder than anyone,” Simmons told Greg Biggins of 247Sports. “They’re close to home so there’s some advantages with that. I’m really close with my mom so having her close by was really important for me.”
Early in his recruitment, Simmons told colleges that he only wanted to play defensive line at the college level which caused a few schools to back off on recruiting him. He later said that he will play wherever he is asked to in college.
He connected with San Diego State offensive line coach Mike Schmidt and it appears he will likely play offensive line there.
Simmons has the versatility to be a great tackle at the next level or go inside and play guard. He has the talent to play early at San Diego State and the upside to play on Sundays.
He is the third offensive lineman from California in San Diego State’s 2021 class, includingof Mater Dei (Santa Ana) and Christian Jones of San Luis Obispo.
Cal lands St. John Bosco transfer
Ieremia Moore of St. John Bosco (Bellflower) committed to Cal on Sunday.
He is a rugby player from New Zealand with very limited football experience and zero high school game film. But he has impressed at various camps, taking home the defensive linemen MVP at the SoCal National Preps Showcase in November.
Moore is 6-foot-4, 270 pounds and is a defensive end but could be an outside backer in a 3-4 scheme. He is extremely athletic for his big frame.
“They like me as a hybrid outside linebacker in a 3-4 but I can also play defensive end or a 3-tech in a 4-3 so I’m really excited about my decision,” Moore told Biggins. “”They really wanted to see me play this season but unfortunately we didn’t get to have a fall season. After the December Signing Day, they decided they wanted to take a chance on me, even without seeing me play.”
Moore is one of five defensive end types from California in Cal’s 2021 class, includingof Santa Margarita, of Liberty (Brentwood), of Moreau Catholic (Hayward) and of Alemany (Mission Hills).
I am 100% committed to the University of California, Berkeley!! 💙🐻💛#GoBears #calgang21 @boscofootball @adamgorney @CTui72 @GregBiggins @COACH_T_BULLOCK @browning_coach @CalRecruiting pic.twitter.com/gCmSZOPGG2
