Simpson Is Another Glenville Prospect

Simpson Is Another Glenville Prospect

Cleveland Glenville is famous in Ohio for producing BCS talent on an annual basis, and their 2014 class seems especially loaded. Cornerback Eric Simpson is yet another prospect of note for the Tarblooders.

Eric Simpson might not be the most well-known of the Cleveland Glenville 2014 prospects, but the 6-foot, 185-pound, cornerback is certainly one to watch.

"I did well as a junior last year, and my coaches were very happy with my play," Simpson stated. "It was my first year playing at cornerback, and I was happy because I did not allow a pass to be caught on me in man coverage all year."

"As a cornerback, my strength would be covering the deep ball and I mainly depended on my speed last year," he added. "My footwork was iffy starting out, but my recovery saved me. I need more reps going against great players to get better, and I'm working hard on my footwork."

Simpson holds one offer, from Bowling Green, and has been in contact with other programs.

"I've spoken with Louisville, Georgia Tech and Indiana," he explained. "I went to games last year at Indiana and Akron, and I will visiting Toledo and Bowling Green this month for junior days. Right now, I'm interested in every school and I'm excited to have the opportunity to play college football."

EVALUATION: Simpson performed well last week at the Raw Talent Sports combine, and his strength is his man coverage. He has added weight since the season ended, but still has his speed. Although not real solid from a technique standpoint, Simpson has a high ceiling and should get better as he gets more experience. Recommended Stories
