He will have three years of eligibility with the Eagles starting after the Fall 2015 semester.

"We're excited about Antravious joining the program," FGCU head coach Joe Dooley said in a news release. "He's a quality, high-character person that we want. He'll be a great fit into our style of play."

Simmons was a three-star prospect in the class of 2013 who drew scholarship offers from Kansas StateMemphis, Miami and South Carolina, among other programs, according to the recruiting service

Florida Gulf Coast has posted an 8-2 record so far this season.
