Simmons previously flipped from UNC to Penn State in July during the 2018 Lasch Bash event. He was previously committed to Indiana, and then flipped to UNC before committing to Penn State in the summer. With his re-commitment to North Carolina, he has announced his pledge for a fourth time.
Questions began floating regarding his status with the Nittany Lions when he visited North Carolina instead of Penn State over the weekend.
Penn State now carries just one wide receiver pledge in the class of 2019 in four-star John Dunmore. Dunmore, a Florida native, has visited Miami numerous times this season, and Penn State will need to battle to hold that commitment as well.
Simmons is the second player to decommit from Penn State in this cycle. Three-star offensive lineman Zachary Franks left the class over the summer after a brief commitment.
Penn State’s 2019 class now sits at 16 members, but that number could grow in the coming days with the early national signing day period coming up Dec. 19-21.
