One Colorado football player that deserves a look is 2014 Prairie View athlete Connor Simpson. Upon watching Simpson play two things stand out that colleges are looking for, first Simpson can run, second Simpson plays with a high motor. Simpson's unique game is exemplified by the positions he plays. On offense Simpson plays offensive guard using his speed, physicality and motor to pull, make blocks at the second level and generally be a nightmare to backers and defensive backs. On defense, Simpson is a very stout middle backer, using his signature traits to hold the fort between the tackles.
Currently Simpson reports he is 6-3, weighs 268 pounds and runs a 4.8 forty. Due to these intriguing measurables Simpson says most potential college suitors are looking at him to play defensive end. This offseason Simpson has focused on maintaining his speed while adding size emphasizing, "footwork, speed and reads."
Although no offers have made their way to Simpson, he says Western State, CSU-Pueblo, Colorado State, Arizona State, Northern Colorado and Southwest Minnesota have all shown interest. In an attempt at gaining a first offer Simpson will put his talents on display as he camps at Arizona State, Colorado, Colorado State, Northern Colorado and Western State.
Simpson also carries a 3.78 GPA a nice bonus to go with his high motor, good speed and physical play.
