S Brandon Simmons (6'1, 180) – Mansfield (Texas) Timberview High

West Virginia, Stanford, Baylor, Ohio State, Michigan and Oklahoma are a few of his top options thus far. He is a safety who will come up and lay a blow, but also has great coverage skills.

He admitted the Army Combine that he is down to a final three of Alabama, Notre Dame and Florida. He is long, with fluid hips and is not afraid to be physical in his coverage.
