WR Andre Simmons Ruled Ineligible for 2010 Season

via extras.mnginteractive.com

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, WR Andre Simmons has been ruled ineligible for the 2010 season. Simmons, a four star recruit in the 2009 class, transferred to Colorado from Independence Community College. The 6'3" 210 pound receiver was supposed to be the playmaking threat the Buffs were missing at wide receiver.

With Simmons ruled ineligible, WR Markques Simas all but gone after his latest DUI arrest and failure to appear in court (Hawkins said he was allowed to earn his way back on the team as a walk-on but he is supposedly moving back to California and transferring to San Diego State University) a supposed preseason team strength has now taken another hit. WR Scotty McKnight is the Buff only receiver with any significant production at the college level. Michigan transfer Toney Clemons will now be counted on even more to bring playmaking and consistency to the position.

During his first fall last season, Simmons was held out of practice to wait for admissions clearance which stunted his development and ability to learn the playbook. In his first game as a Buff against Colorado St., Simmons, who was not expected to play due to missing time in the fall, had one catch for 44 yards. But over the next 11 games, the big receiver saw little productive playing time, finishing the year with two receptions for 47 yards. 

According to the Daily Camera, the coaches " are hoping he can earn a waiver from the NCAA this summer. He could sit out this fall and improve in the classroom and return for the 2011 campaign."
