Lucky Number 13 - Deon Simon
Simon is a Louisiana native that stands at an impressive 6'4", 280 lbs. He has been recruited as an end (his high school position) and tackle, but said he will likely play the three-technique at tackle for UCF.
Last season for Glen Oaks H.S., Simon had 71 tackles and 10 sacks despite playing on a sprained ankle for most of the season. This toughness proved to be an important factor for several schools, as Kentucky, Southern Miss and Colorado had also offered the Baton Rouge product.
Simon visited UCF earlier this year and loved the campus, as well as Coach Kelly and Coach O'Leary.
"It's a pretty good school, it's a nice campus and I like all of the coaches. I talk to Coach Kelly a lot and we have a real good relationship. He's a nice guy. (Coach O'Leary) is a real good coach. He's straight forward, he tells you what he expects from you. He's just a good coach," Simon told InsideKnights.com in a previous interview.
Simon is ranked by Scout.com as the 55th best end in the nation, and according to Scout he is UCF's fourth recruit ranked three-stars or higher. The Knights have a very solid player on their hands in Simon, who offers toughness, strength, speed and an aptitude for doing whatever is needed of him.
