WATCH: Isaiah Simmons says Clemson culture is 'unmatched'


by -

Isaiah Simmons is ready to get his professional career going after a No. 8 selection to the Arizona Cardinals last week.

Arizona media had the opportunity to talk the ins and outs of Simmons' next stop and where he came from. Simmons told a reporter that his late recruiting visit to Clemson set the Tigers apart from the rest.

"I was heavily considering Michigan and enjoyed my visit (there)," Simmons said, "but after I went to Clemson, there was nothing that could even compete. Nothing even came close. Just with the culture and the people there -- it's unmatched...From the moment I left Clemson, I knew that's what I wanted to do. I wanted to go to Clemson."

Simmons is still pinching himself over being a pro.

"Every day, I'm thinking, 'Dang, I'm finally in the pros,'" Simmons said. "Well I'm not quite there yet, but I'm there. I've just been dreaming of this...I'm fully grateful."
