"Arizona State was a lot of fun," Simas said. "I liked the facilities and the guys on the team. I know a couple of ASU starters who come from San Diego."
"I didn't commit to Arizona State and I wasn't really tempted," Simas said. "Arizona State really let me know their situation and how I can help. They need guys who can make a play after the catch.
"I will take my fifth visit to Washington State in mid-December," Simas said. "I should have my college decision made a week or two after Washington State."
"If I had to say was a favorite, I would say Colorado," Simas said. "I like the small town that the school is located. It had a college atmosphere.
"Colorado had some of the best facilities that I have seen," Simas said. "Academically they are in the top ten of public Universities and that is important to my Mom and I."
Simas missed his last couple of games due to an injury and he had to watch his team lose in the first round of the playoffs to Poway.
"That was hard," Simas said. "Just watching and not be able to help the team that was tough."
