There was not much fanfare from this commit. More on that below.
In fact, this commit is an unranked zero star athlete from the state of Oklahoma in CJ Simon from Moore, OK.
Thanks to all coaches and teams who have been on this recruiting journey with me. I will be committing to Nebraska University #GBR @CoachMattRhule @GarretMcGuire @HuskersCJC @HuskerFootball @CoachGBryant @Nebraska247 @On3Recruits @Josh_Scoop pic.twitter.com/9DU7h2oI14— CJ Simon (@alldaycj34) December 2, 2023
Simon is a 6’1” 160 pound athlete and considered one of the top 10 players in the state of Oklahoma. He chose Nebraska over offers from Kansas, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State.
I have not need anything about his speed but it is likely he is extremely fast because that is what this staff continues to look for in athletes. They have shown that they look for certain physical metrics. They have some boxes to check.
They believe in their coaching that they can teach these kids how to be good football players. However, they cannot teach kids how to be fast like a track athlete.
Congrats to CJ Simon and I am sure he will be rated soon enough. That wouldn’t surprise me at all.
That’s how these things work.
