Found a Story on Desmond Simmons

Can be found here

Here are some highlights…

His play helped attract various colleges to the small Richmond campus. Schools such as Oregon State, Arizona State, St. Mary’s, Santa Clara, San Jose State and Santa Barbara had offered him scholarships. Other schools starting to show interest in him included Nevada Reno, Providence, Utah and Minnesota. But after thinking long and hard about what was in front of him, Simmons decided to end his basketball recruitment and verbally commit to Lorenzo Romar and the University of Washington Huskies.

“I think Washington is a good fit for me,” said Simmons.  “I liked the campus and the basketball program.”

Simmons said he was sold on Coach Romar as a coach who can relate with his players. He said that he wanted to verbally commit early to get it out of the way, so he can just concentrate on having a solid senior season without being harassed by college coaches.

Here is a comparison about his game made in the story…

“Desmond is a Dennis Rodman type with a jump shot,” said Foster. “He can play multiple positions and he has the ability to impact the game at every facet.” 

One of the things that stands out about Simmons the most is his high level of activity on the court. He is involved on almost all facets of plays on both ends of the court, as he has a hunger for the ball. 

“He blocks shots, gets into the passing lanes and gets on loose balls,” continued Foster. “He has the ability to score around the rim and he has a nice shooting touch out to 18 feet.”

Dennis Rodman, not too shabby.

But I should I have a Floyd reaction up tomorrow, might even go podcast with it. The Nick Montana news got me fired up and distracted. The story about his commitment can be found here, at the homepage. Exclusive interview!
