Simmons can't wait to get to USC

By Tim Haddock



Seven football players from Crespi in Encino will be continuing their careers in college.

Jordan Simmons is the top recruit from Crespi. The 6-feet-5, 330 pound offensive lineman is headed to USC.

“I decided to go to USC because I felt like it was the perfect fit for me,” Simmons said. “I just want to compete when I step on that first day. I’m excited. I’m ready to start.”

Simmons wanted to enroll at USC in the spring, but he said Crespi wouldn’t allow him to graduate early. He will be competing for a spot on a USC team that is coming off NCAA sanctions and is expected to challenge for a national championship.
