The Alexander City product has taken several trips to Auburn and included the Tigers in his top seven schools on June 15. They are battling Arkansas, UCF, Coastal Carolina, West Virginia, Indiana and Liberty for the impressive athlete.
While his recruitment is far from over, Auburn is started to separate itself from the pack and is now the favorite to land Simmons. Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports has cast a crystal ball in favor of Auburn.
Simmons is the No. 365 overall player and No. 28 athlete in the 247Sports Composite ranking. He is also the No. 19 player from Alabama.
He hasn’t set a specific commitment date yet but has stated he’d like to commit before the start of his senior season. He is slated to return to Auburn on July 29 for Big Cat Weekend.
