Peter Simmons

Name: Peter Simmons
283 lbs.
High school:
Bonita Springs (FL) Bishop Verot
Defensive tackle
Redshirt junior
Jersey number:
Last year:
I ranked Simmons #128 and said he would be a backup defensive tackle (LINK). He did not play.
TTB Rating:

Simmons has spent three years at Michigan as a walk-on and a backup offensive and defensive lineman. So far he has yet to see the field.

Maybe this is the year!

Maybe not, though. It’s tough when you’re 6’1″ and 283 pounds to see the field at a place like Michigan, unless you’re super quick like David Molk. But he does play a defensive tackle position that is a little light in numbers. Michigan was flirting with defensive end types like Enow Etta and walk-on Joey Klunder at defensive tackle this spring, and they were going after some transfer portal types as rotation guys. No one should be expecting Simmons to enter the rotation, but in case of a blowout, he could be a guy who gets some late game snaps just to give other guys a rest. And if he sticks around for 2025, he could be on the same team as another Bishop Verot product in 2025 quarterback commit Carter Smith.

Prediction: Backup defensive tackle
