Colin Simmons is one of the fastest rising prospects in the 2024 recruiting class.
Although he’s classified as a linebacker, he plays the edge for Duncanville High School and could potentially fill that role nicely at the collegiate level. After a dominant individual performance against DeSoto last week, Simmons announced on Tuesday that he has received an offer from the University of Texas.
The four-star prospect is currently rated the No. 4 linebacker in the nation and the No. 8 overall recruit in the state of Texas for the 2024 cycle, according to 247Sports.
Simmons only holds scholarship offers from Michigan State, SMU, Marshall, and Texas up to this point, but it’s extremely likely that dozens of Power Five offers will be flooding in soon.
When Longhorns Wire’s Griffin McVeigh caught up with five-star edge Omari Abor last week, who Simmons was filling in for against DeSoto due to an injury, Abor stated that Simmons will definitely end up being better than him.
