National Signing Day, Boston College Football: DB Justin Simmons

Part of BC Interruption's National Signing Day Coverage.

Justin Simmons
Hometown:
Stuart, Florida
High School: Martin County HS
Position: Defensive back
Height: 6-3
Weight: 175 lbs
40: 4.59

Rankings: Rivals 3* (position 47), Scout 2* (position 131), ESPN 2* (rated a 74, position 110, regional 665, state 240), 247 Sports 2* (rated a 79, position 106, state 206). Selected Boston College over Florida International, Georgia State, Illinois, Presbyterian, Purdue and Western Michigan. Recruited by Ryan Day.

Stats: Finished senior season with 90 tackles, five interceptions, two defensive touchdowns and one fumble recovery; led team to its first playoff win in 20 years ... accumulated more than 1,000 all-purpose yards and eight touchdowns.

Strengths: Via ESPN: "Simmons lacks a lot of wow factor to his game in terms of great speed and explosiveness but he simply makes plays and is a versatile athlete. Big target receiver with good intermediate production but we see the fulltime move to safety at the college level."

Realistic Outlook: It's a bit unclear whether Spaz will use Simmons as a wide receiver or a defensive back, but I'd say the priority should be using Simmons on offense. He hsa good size and could blossom into yet another under-the-radar Boston College receiver, starring with Marcus Grant, Harrison Jackson, Joel Zoungrana and Spiffy.

Welcome to the Heights, Justin!
