Less than a week after leaving Texas Tech, Delvon Simmons already has one visit under his belt and another in the offing.
According to Bruce Feldman of CBSSports.com, the defensive lineman will take a trip to Miami this weekend and visit the Hurricanes. Last weekend, Simmons visited USC, which was one of his finalists coming out of high school a couple of years ago.
Simmons is also reportedly interested in a pair of FBS programs from his home state of Pennsylvania — Penn State and Pittsburgh. There’s been no official word yet on if/when a visit to one or both of those schools will take place.
A four-star member of North Carolina’s 2011 recruiting class and rated as the No. 1 player in Pennsylvania at any position, Simmons was released from his Tar Heels scholarship a little over a month after National Signing Day and ultimately landed at Texas Tech. He started all 13 games for the Red Raiders in 2012 after playing in 10 games as a true freshman in 2011.
Simmons, who will be forced to sit out the 2013 season if he stays at the FBS level, will have two years to use two seasons of eligibility beginning in 2014.
