He’s amongst the Top-150 prospects in the 2021 class but KJ Simpson, a combo-guard who plays for Chaminade in California, isn’t getting the attention he deserves. Simpson is a 6-foot-2 dynamic prospect who says that “I watch lots of basketball you know so I like to model my game after a lot of people but I tend to try and be original with it.”
Simpson also finds himself with high-major recruitment which includes him being prioritized by a majority of the West Coast. That includes a recent offer from Arizona’s Sean Miller. In addition, USC’s Andy Enfield became the latest Pac-12 school to extend an offer. Both programs give Simpson his third and fourth Pac-12 offers [ASU, Wazzu].
“The newest schools are BYU and UCSB. USC just offered along with Arizona last week so most of these schools I’ve been in contact with for a while but that’s the latest schools who reached out and who offered,” Simpson said. He also listed several programs that have recently shown interest and/or have been in contact with him.
Louisville, Arizona State, UCLA, Stanford, Georgia Tech, and 15+ others were listed as programs that have reached out or have shown some sort of interest in Simpson who says that right now he’s ‘focused on the season’ and doesn’t plan to take any visits as of now due to scheduling conflicts. He plans on taking visits when the season is over just to check out some programs.
How does this combo-guard fill out his own scouting report on himself?
