Texas edge Colin Simmons shares his college football aspirations

Colin Simmons is driven to be great at Texas. The pursuit of greatness for him is perhaps greater than the average college player.

Simmons shared why he chose Texas to the 3rd and Longhorn podcast.

“Being real close to family, being real close to home. I feel like, being the face of Texas is a real big thing for me.”

Being the face of Texas is a high goal, but one in which Simmons is certainly in the conversation. It’s a different mentality than many have. He wants to be the best.

On the podcast, he discussed pursuing making an immediate impact as an early enrollee over enjoying the rest of his high school experience.

“Having that chance to contribute early and learn the scheme early and get out there on the field, I mean, that’s my main goal.”

For Simmons, putting in the work to make a difference at Texas is the top priority. He’ll look to make an impression over spring football.
