As Cam Newton goes, so goes the Carolina Panthers. They may not be as good on paper after losing…
Commitment Tracker: Eric Simmons
"Truly, they made me feel like family at Kentucky," Eric Simmons stated. "Coach (Joker) Phillips is a great guy. When I went on my official I got to talk to all of the coaches. They were great people. They covered basically everything that I needed to know. Kentucky just had everything I was looking for. "The campus was real nice. I was looking for a nice campus, because after football season I'd like to be in a nice living area. The facilities are great. The stadium is great, too. Those things played a big part in my decision." Simmons has no plans of taking additional visits. "I won't be taking any other visits," he commented. "I don't feel like I need to take anymore official visits. I'm not looking to de-commit from Kentucky." The Kentucky staff is looking to take advantage of Simmons' physical style of play. "They're recruiting me as a corner," he said. "I asked if they were gonna play me at corner or safety. They told me that they liked my physical play at corner. That's where they want me to play." Simmons is relatively new to the game of football, but he already feels at home in the secondary. "The best part of my game are my coverage skills," he said. "My technique is very good. I just feel comfortable in coverage. This is just my second year of football, and I already feel comfortable in coverage." The West Atlanta prospect has helped Westlake to a 7-2 record in 5A. He has totaled some respectable stats through nine games. "Right now I think I have 21 tackles," he said. "I have two interceptions. I probably have 11 or 12 pass break-ups. And I have one fumble recovery." Eric Simmons also has scholarship offers from Middle Tennessee and New Mexico. He plans to graduate with his senior class and report to Kentucky in the first week of June.
