Westgate High School is always home to same elite talent and Amari Simon is in that next crop of budding stars. I was able to do a Q&A with him and get his thoughts on recruiting and his goals. Simon just wrapped up his sophomore sophomore season and looking for a big junior year.

Amari on his goals for his junior year "My goal is to show what a lot of coaches are missing out on and getting back to state. To show that nothing we ever did at Westgate was a “fluke” and prove that we not a one hit wonder." Regarding his recruitment he said "I’ve been being told that University of Louisiana at Lafayette and potentially LA Tech was keeping a eye out for me but nothing official at all. I’ve just heard from a coach from UL said he would keep eyes on me this summer as he attend our practices." He added "This junior year fixing to be spectacular for me so once someone give me a shot I’ll definitely look into the school and see where i fit in."

I asked him to describe his playing style and he said " I would describe myself as a physical player who can cover and always come down when a tackle is needed no matter who is on the other side of the ball." On what he is looking for in a school "I’m looking for a school that can fit my play style and somewhere that can accept me and not a place that’s about hype , somewhere that can put me to work and get better." On if there are any schools standing out to him "I accept anything that comes my way, I wouldn’t refuse anything when i came from nothing." He added " If LSU ever believed in me and decided to offer me they will be one of my contenders and every kid who grew up in Louisiana would say they would love to play at LSU and I agree."
