Bama impresses RB, UCLA next

Things are going good for Harrisburg, Pa. running back Mikell Simpson these days with his knee rehab ending early and coming off a good visit to Alabama.
“I had a great time down there,” said the four-star running back. “The atmosphere and everything was great. I like the coaches and the players. It was great to see what goes on in a great college football rivalry like that.”
The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder enjoyed everything despite the 21-13 loss to Auburn.

“My host was (running back) Tim Castille and I enjoyed everyone I met,” Simpson said.
Simpson isn’t making any decisions just yet. He has already visited Michigan State and Virginia, while planning to go to UCLA on Dec. 3. Simpson would like to make one more visit to North Carolina, West Virginia or Wisconsin.
“I want to make all five visits and then sit down with my parents and make a decision,” Simpson said.
He is glad to have one day left of his left knee rehab. Simpson tore the meniscus in his left knee, but has worked himself back into shape much quicker than doctors predicted.
”I feel great and I’m ready to go,” Simpson said.
