Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Recruiting: Interview with Signee DE Antonio Simmons

Over the past month I've interviewed a few of the most recent signing class, and wanted to share with you what they shared with me. Up first: DE Antonio Simmons.

Here's to hoping Antonio causes a lot of this.

Antonio's recruit profile can be found here.

You committed back in November, but how long have you known Georgia Tech was one of your top choices?

It wasn't that long. I really wasn't worrying about any of that for a while. I was just trying to focus on my senior season.

Who else was recruiting you, and why Georgia Tech over them?

A LOT of teams! I love everything about Georgia Tech and am particularly excited about the chances of early playing time!

Sounds like you guys have bonded quite a bit as a class. Anyone that you've gotten to know really well or are hoping to room with?

I know most everybody, except for a few guys. I'd love to room with Qua (Searcy) and the twins (Lawrence and Lance Austin)!

Do they have you slotted at WDE (rush end) or SDE?

Rush end, so on the weak side.

Any idea what you want to study?

No, not yet. I wanted to be a kinesiologist, but they don't have a program for that. We'll have to see.

Last question -- is there anything you want the fan base to know about you?

I love to feed off the crowd. When there's energy in the stadium I play even better!

Awesome, thanks so much and congratulations on signing! We're excited to have you on board!

Excited to be here and can't wait to get started!
