Simon Impresses at Elite II

SONY DSCJustin Simon came east to Hoop Group Elite II and clearly made an impression on several major collegiate coaches.

Simon (Temecula Valley (Calif.) High School/ 6-4/ 2015), who just two weeks ago transferred from Eleanor Roosevelt (Calif.) High School to Temecula, was a member of Elite II’s NBA East Upperclassmen Division championship team and was named an NBA East Underclassmen All-Star.

But as nice as those honors are, the real reward for Simon came from the exposure to collegiate coaches at the Hoop Group camp.

According to sources at the San Diego Union-Tribune, coaches from Minnesota, Villanova, West Virginia, Florida State and Virginia Tech were impressed with Simon. This is in addition to the offers he has already received from UC-Irvine, San Jose State, San Diego and Santa Clara and the interest from Iowa, Penn State and USC to name a few.

Simon plans to make an unofficial visit to USC in the near future. (This story will be updated) –@pfebbraro
