IOWA HAWKEYE FOOTBALL RECRUITING 2016: NEW DEFENSIVE TACKLE BRANDON SIMON

New, 1 comment

Three-star defensive tackle from Ramsey, New Jersey.

Brandon Simon

Defensive Tackle

Hometown: Ramsey, New Jersey
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 236
247 Sports Composite Rating: 3-star, 993 nationally, 69th WDE
Other Offers: UCONN, Boston College, Syracuse
Caring is Creepy: Have a Seat, Brandon Simon

COMPARISON: Simon was a defensive end in high school and rated there by the services but 6'1" is a tad short for that position. He's a couple years away from competing as he'll arrive to Iowa around 240 pounds. Nathan Bazata plays interior defensive line at 6'2" and carries 284 pounds really well. If Simon can add the 40 pounds and keep his quickness, he could be one of Iowa's starting defensive tackles in two years.
