Washington (D.C.) Maret School wide receiver Ryan Simpson made a decision last month. The 6-foot-4, 205-pounder has decided to head to the Ivy League.
"I committed on my official visit last month to Harvard," he said. "Basically it was because it's the best academic school in the nation.
"I also talked to the coach and have always wanted to do civil engineering. They said I can take some of the programs through MIT. That's a plus for me. Also, they are one of the best football teams in the Ivy League."

A chance for playing time is very possible as well for the three-star prospect.
"I know they have a pair of receivers this year that both got hurt," he said. "At midseason, they ended up starting a freshman and then they have a basketball recruit that got some time, so I'm hoping I'll get some playing time."
Prior to his decision, Simpson held offers from Navy, New Hampshire, Bryant Georgetown and spots at a number of the other schools in the Ivy League.
Simpson posted 43 receptions for 528-yards and nine touchdowns as a senior in just five games due to a separated shoulder. Simpson earned all-metro and all-conference.
