Name: Peter Simmons III
Weight: 291 lbs.
High school: Bonita Springs (FL) Bishop Verot
Position: Offensive guard
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #75
Last year: I ranked Simmons #129 and said he would redshirt (LINK). He redshirted.
TTB Rating: N/A
Simmons moves up a little bit from last year, largely based on the departure of guys ahead of him. I mentioned in last year’s introduction to him that he is limited athletically, and he doesn’t have overwhelming size at 6’3″. Of course former starting center Andrew Vastardis was also 6’3″, but I don’t think Simmons is on the same level athletically. Simmons is probably a career backup, but those guys can be valuable on the scout team.
Prediction: Backup offensive lineman
