West Charlotte’s Jalen “Scoot” Simmons has committed to Duke, his father Donald said.
Simmons, a 5-foot-9, 200-pound junior, was among a group of the nation’s top junior players invited to the U.S. Army All-American Game last month for an athletic combine. Simmons has 4.5 second 40 yard dash speed.
“We’re really excited,” Donald Simmons said. “When we went up there and visited, he said he was ready to commit.. He’s always liked Duke and he wanted to play in the ACC. I thought he was going to take a little more time before he made his decision but he was ready.”
