DePorres Athlete Has All The Tools

St. Martin DePorres could have as many as five D-1 prospects in 2003. Two of their prospects, Carl Grimes and Eric Hines have already pledged Michigan State. Quarterback Carlos Simpson has the talent to reach football's highest level as well.

St. Martin Des Porres High School is loaded with D-1 football talent. Wide receiver Carl Grimes and cornerback Eric Hines have already pledged Michigan State.

The best of the bunch at De Porres is probably junior wide receiver Talonnie Russell. Russell had a little under 1,000 yards receiving and 13 touchdowns as a sophomore.

A prospect to keep a close eye on 2003 will be De Porres quarterback Carlos Simpson. Simps threw for 2,365 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior and he also rushed 430 yards and five rushing scores.

Simpson is hoping the college recruiters can look past his size (5-10, 190) and look at his athleticism and quickness.

Carlos Simpson is a solid high school quarterback with an above average arm. He’s patient in the pocket and has a presence about himself.

Carlos is a terrific option quarterback that’s dangerous when he gets in space. Simpson could play quarterback, wide receiver or defensive back at the next level.

We’ll have more on Carlos Simpson in the near future.
