"Up Close" with DeMonte Simpson


"Up Close" with DeMonte Simpson

Florida Atlantic sophomore DeMonte Simpson returns in the back-court for the Owls after having shot a team best 49.4% from the floor, and pulling down 4.5 rebounds per game - good enough for second on the squad.

Simpson played against upper echelon talent throughout his entire high school career; most notably matching South Florida Monsignor Pace’s, and four-star University of Louisville signee, Rakeem Buckles toe to toe during their on court meeting.

During his senior year, Bearden High Head Coach Mark Blevins told the local media that he had never seen a better game in the "Dog House" - site of an annual rivalry game against foe Fulton High School - when Simpson registered a staggering 33 points, and 22 rebounds for the night.

Simpson had a lot of early interest from mid major programs, and received an early offer from Virginia Tech that he walked away from. Today, he says he is where he is supposed to be at Florida Atlantic, and playing for Coach Mike Jarvis.
