2025 Recruit Austin Simmons Receives Offer From Penn State Football

Austin Simmons, a 2025 quarterback recruit out of Pahokee, Fl was offered a scholarship by Penn State on Thursday.

Simmons is a 6-foot-3, 190-pound pro-style quarterback out of Pahokee High School who completed 96 of 145 passes for 1,684 yards and 15 touchdowns with only four interceptions in six games last season for the Blue Devils as they went 9-2 and a Florida Class 1A regional final appearance.

He has received offers from Louisville, Florida Atlantic, Florida State, and Purdue. He also pitches for the Pahokee High School baseball team.

Simmons was suspended for five games in 2021 because he played as an ineligible eighth-grader at Flanagan High School in Broward County, Florida. Last summer Palm Beach County athletic director Valarie Miyares wrote a letter to the Florida High School Athletic Association accusing his father David of committing a “blatant use of false signatures and false information on FHSAA and District documentation” to gain eligibility for Austin.

With his suspension behind him and now focused on his athletic and academic career, he is already impressing college coaches with his arm talent, poise in the pocket, and accuracy. What is most impressive is that even amid all the controversy surrounding him Simmons achieved a 4.8-grade point average while taking dual-enrollment classes.

Simmons does not have a star rating but it will be interesting to see his development during his next three years without any eligibility concerns and only concentrating on athletics.
