Despite the NCAA giving student-athletes an extra year of eligibility, senior West Virginia wide receiver T.J. Simmons elected to turn down the extra year and begin preparation for the NFL.
Earlier this week, Simmons signed with Paul Aloise of Renegade Sports and Entertainment and Tanner Simkins of Complete SET Agency. Chris Beverely of Lionhearted Sports will be handling the marketing side of things.
In terms of Simmons' current draft projection, well, many mock drafts have him going undrafted at the moment but that can change once the draft evaluation period begins. During his three years in Morgantown, Simmons hauled in 86 receptions for 1,187 yards, and nine touchdowns.
Due to the pandemic, the NFL will not be holding the NFL Combine in a regular manner. A finalized, revised plan will be announced sometime next week according to Albert Breer of The MMQB. Colleges are still expected to host Pro Days but again, that could change at any moment as well. This will be a tough year for projected undrafted guys to impress enough in limited workouts to sneak into the back end of the draft.
The NFL Draft is scheduled for April 29th-May 1st in Cleveland, Ohio.
