2021 WR Simms Ready To See Memorial Stadium Atmosphere in Fall

June 23, 2019

Over the weekend, Nebraska hosted a lot of visitors and also held its annual Friday Night Lights camp. There are always players in the camp that you go in wanting to get a look at to see how they perform. However, one of the cool things about these camps is when new players emerge and start to make a name for themselves.

One player that fit the bill was 2021 Derby High School (Kansas) wide receiver Davin Simms. The junior to be made his first trip to check out Nebraska on Friday and said “it was amazing.”

Simms performed well at the camp but when he wasn’t catching passes, he was getting to interact with the coaches.

“Yes, I got to talk to about all of the offensive coaches,” he said. “I really enjoyed talking to everyone. They showed a lot of love.”

It’s always fun to be in Memorial Stadium for prospects and being there for camp and checking out campus does make Simms want to come back in the fall. He said that he will “most definitely” be back in the fall because it’s a great atmosphere to be around.  If his high school, Derby, sounds familiar it’s because that’s where 2020 offensive lineman Alex Conn attends as well. Simms says the pair has talked about the Huskers.

“Yeah Alex is also being recruited and we talked about if I got offered by Nebraska both of us committing together,” Simms said.

When it comes to picking up that offer from the Nebraska, Simms said there have been talks about that.

“Yes sir, they said when September 1 comes around and I’m eligible they would potentially like to offer me.”

As Simms starts to get a feel for the recruiting process he is sorting through the things he is looking for in a school. His recruitment will likely take off during his junior season and when it does, he knows some things he is looking for.

“I’m looking for a good education, a coaching staff that believes in me, and a opportunity to be a part of something great!”
