David Simon keeping busy schedule

David 'Boo' Simon, Scout.com three-star offensive tackle from Bay Minette-Baldwin County, Ala., has been on a whirlwind tour of schools this summer. He talked about the camps and which ones grabbed his attention.

"I have been on a lot of trips," said David Simon. "I went to Duke, Florida State, Alabama, Auburn, Stanford and Mississippi State. It was pretty much all in one week.

"The last trip was to Stanford. I was there last Monday. We are probably going to more schools. I am not totally sure where else we are going, but we will have some more plans."

Simon talked more about his visit with Stanford.

"I got there on Sunday and visited on Monday," he said. "It went good. I didn't stay long. My dad had a business trip pop up. It's an impressive school. It's a good football program and overall was a good trip.

"I did the camp and saw some of the campus. I worked with the offensive line coach [Tim Drevno] and met coach Harbaugh. They didn't say too much. It was a pretty ordinary camp. We just showed up and worked.

"I have a lot of respect for their program. I haven't really narrowed my list down yet. I am still wide open, but I like it there."

A camp closer to home stood out above the rest.

"I really enjoyed the Florida State trip," said Simon. "I got to work with coach Trickett. He is definitely one of the best offensive line coaches in the country.

"It was the best camp because we learned so much in a short amount of time. The efficiency of the camp really stood out to me. I spoke to coach Trickett for a little while. He said they are really interested in me.

"Florida State is a top-tier program. Coach Fisher and his team are great. Florida State is a great university, and they have a great stadium. The facilities are among the best in the nation."

Simon remarked about the other camps as well.

Duke: "The Duke trip went good. We worked all day. At the end coach Luke said they would be in touch and very interested. It was a good camp."

Alabama: "It was a big offensive line and defensive line day. We did a lot of drills and one-on-ones. It had the most talent of all the camps I attended. It was really competitive. A lot of great players were there."

Auburn: "That was another competitive camp. We did one-on-ones and offensive line drills. I got to tour their facilities. They are very interested."

Mississippi State: "A select few of us got to work with the offensive coach [John Hevesy]. He was able to focus more attention on us. We went against a few select defensive linemen."

Simon is not listing any favorites at this time.
