Notes: Simmons racked up 91 tackles, 42 tackles-for-loss, and six sacks as a junior. He earned first-team AP Group AAA all-state honors for his performance. Simmons is getting looks at both the safety and linebacker positions on the next level. He plays outside linebacker in high school.

Coach Chris Beatty: “Deveon is about the most explosive player on defense I’ve ever seen. When he hits people, he runs through them. He covers so much ground and he has unbelievable instincts that you just can’t teach. He also has tremendous athletic ability. Nebraska’s coach called him a Lawrence Taylor-type player. He’s obviously not as big, but he makes the same type of plays sideline to sideline as well as getting to the quarterback.”
