Ty Simpson has game-changing talent. The pro-style quarterback has been exceptional throughout his high school football career and is looking toward his future.

Simpson, who plays for the Westview High School Chargers in Martin, Tenn., is one of the best quarterback prospects in the 2022 recruiting class.

The hype started to formulate in 2019 when he threw for 1,770 yards and 18 touchdowns, and the Chargers cruised to a playoff berth. His stock took off from there, to put it mildly.

Simpson had several elite college football programs after him but decided to be the future commander of Nick Saban’s offense.

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.

The five-star quarterback 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 his arm strength allows him to 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.

Thanks to an impressive performance at the Elite 11, an NFL future certainly seems possible for the Alabama football commit.


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.
