5-star QB target commits to Alabama
|Friday, February 26, 2021, 3:14 PM-|
Five-star 2022 quarterback Ty Simpson (Martin, Tenn.) announced a commitment to Alabama on Friday, picking the Crimson Tide over Clemson and Tennessee.
Simpson has rankings as both a pro-style and a dual-threat QB, rating a 5-star in the 247Sports Composite and as high as the No. 2 dual-threat QB on ESPN and the No. 3 pro-style QB on Rivals and 247Sports.
Simpson had made multiple stops on Clemson’s campus, including last fall in the stands for the Pittsburgh home game in Death Valley.
Elsewhere in the QB market, four-star Clemson target Cade Klubnik (Austin, Texas), who announced a Tigers offer Friday afternoon, moved up to No. 40 overall in Rivals' rankings this week.
