Joe Bendel profiles University Prep graduate Troy Simons, who is now a standout basketball player at Polk State.
"Troy Simons is in the midst of his final audition for Division I basketball coaches. His every shot, pass, and thunderous dunk can be analyzed at any time, via live-action or later on video.
This Polk State College sophomore, by way of Brashear High/University Prep/Imani Christian Academy/Renaissance Christian Academy, is embracing these moments with great fervor.
A 6-1 combo guard who is playing the point, Simons scores (25.3 points per game), passes (2.1 assists), rebounds (5.4), steals (2.0) and regularly opens the eyes of Division I programs.
Pitt has shown interest in the Hill District resident. Ditto for Dayton, New Mexico State, Portland State, Memphis, Utah (which visited the Winter Haven, Fla., school last week) and Middle Tennessee State."
