Elite QB prospect Ty Simpson announces delay to his upcoming college commitment
Ty Simpson was scheduled to make his college commitment this week, on Friday, Feb. 19, but those plans have now changed.
That could mean good news for Tennessee, giving him more time to develop a relationship with first-year Volunteer coach Josh Heupel, although it would be wise to not read too much into news that the top quarterback from the Volunteer State has announced he will delay his college commitment.
On Monday, Simpson announced he will officially be pushing his college commitment and announced a new date to declare his decision.
“Due to inclement weather, and the closing of my school. I will be delaying my commitment announcement until Friday, February 26 at pm/CST at Westview High school,” Simpson posted.
The Martin, Tenn., native is rated as the nation’s No. 2 dual-threat quarterback prospect and a top 50 overall recruit for the 2022 recruiting cycle according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. Simpson is also committed to the 2022 All-American Bowl.
The elite signal-caller from Westview High School will be picking between Alabama, Clemson and Tennessee.
While he’s been a longtime target of all three programs, Simpson recently caused quite the stir among Vol Nation for his pro-Tennessee comments during an appearance on Nashville-based radio program 3HL of 104.5 The Zone.
For fans eagerly awaiting Simpson’s decision, they’ll have to wait another week to find out where the All-American is headed to play his college football.
