According to a report by ESPN‘s Bruce Feldman, the son of New York Giants star Phil Simms will be headed to Knoxville to continue his collegiate football career.
Matt Simms, who’s also the brother of former Texas quarterback Chris Simms, has signed a letter of intent to play at Tennessee, Feldman reports.
Simms played at El Camino College this season after transferring from Louisville this past January. The quarterback transferred from the Cardinals after Steve Kragthorpe failed to anoint him as the starter ahead of spring practice.
Today is the first day JUCO players can sign letters of intent with four-year schools. [Writer’s Note: A previous version of this story described Phil Simms as an NFL Hall of Famer. He’s not. And you could’ve won a good chunk of money betting me on that fact. Which brings up another troubling point: why the hell isn’t Phil Simms in the Hall of Fame?]
