Simpson, who plays for the Westview High School Chargers in Martin, Tenn., is one of the best quarterback prospects in the 2022 recruiting class.
Then, on February 26, 2021, Simpson announced where he will play his college football.
QB Ty Simpson Commits to Alabama
The Clemson Tigers and Tennessee Volunteers were once thought to be the two trending favorites for quarterback Ty Simpson. That was the past, however.
Simpson, a four-star recruit by ESPN and Rivals and a five-star prospect by the 247Sports Composite, is taking his talents to Tuscaloosa to play for the Alabama Crimson Tide and head coach Nick Saban.
In addition to Bama, Clemson, and Tennessee, Simpson also received college football offers from Arizona State, Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Duke, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Memphis, Michigan, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, NC State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, South Carolina, Texas, Texas A&M, USC, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia.
Simpson also received an offer from Tennessee-Martin, where his father, Jason Simpson, is the Skyhawks’ head football coach.
In the end, Alabama won again.
Ty Simpson’s High School Football Highlights
There is a lot to like about Ty Simpson, both as a pro-style quarterback and dual-threat quarterback. He is as elusive as some running backs and can throw a great spiral to wide receivers with ease.
The state of Tennessee is known for developing linebackers and players on the offensive line, so it is nice to see an All-American quarterback who can make some noise at the collegiate level come from the state.
Ty Simpson is still over a year away from graduating, but he has made his decision and is already thinking about winning a NCAA national championship at Alabama.
