Guard Simmons sets visit with USF
One more piece of basketball recruiting news to finish off a busy day: Jeremie Simmons, the 6-foot-2 guard from Mott Community College in Flint, Mich., said Wednesday night that he has scheduled an official campus visit to USF on March 28.
Simmons, who led Mott to victory Tuesday in the opening round of the Division II national junior college tournament in Danville, Ill., said USF coach Stan Heath was on hand to watch Tuesday's game, and while the Bulls haven't been recruiting him long, he's very interested in their program.
"I just think it's a good place to come and play," said Simmons, who plays again Thursday afternoon.
Simmons' coach at Mott had said he had scheduled a visit with Butler, but Simmons said USF was the only visit he's scheduled. He's also considering Butler, Valparaiso and George Mason, with Alabama jumping into contention in the last week.
