Name: Peter Simmons III
Weight: 291 lbs.
High school: Bonita Springs (FL) Bishop Verot
Position: Defensive tackle
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Last year: I ranked Simmons #120 and said he would be a backup offensive lineman (LINK). He did not play.
TTB Rating: N/A
Simmons is yet another walk-on whose burden was so heavy that he got one inch shorter from 2022 to 2023. Whoever’s measuring these walk-ons needs to be fired.
Anyway, in addition to getting smaller, Simmons has moved from offensive guard to defensive tackle this off-season. I do not expect that to have much effect on his playing time. He is still unlikely to get on the field unless it’s a huge blowout.
Prediction: Backup defensive tackle
