FanShot - Bohn Clears WR Andre Simmons to Begin Practicing

Receiver Andre Simmons was cleared by Colorado athletics director Mike Bohn Wednesday afternoon to begin practicing immediately with the Buffaloes. Simmons, a transfer from Independence (Kan.) Community College, reported with the rest of the Buffs on Aug. 6, but has been held out of practices pending verification of his eligibility. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder from Blackville, S.C., received a round of applause from his teammates during Wednesday afternoon's position meeting, conducted by head coach/receivers coach Dan Hawkins. "Guys, let's hear it for 'Dre' - he's good to go today," Hawkins said. Big news for the success of the offense in 2009.
