ESPN No. 8 ranked high school senior Anfernee Simons, who decommitted from Louisville amid the school’s alleged role in a FBI bribery investigation, is now considering the likes of NC State, South Carolina, Florida, and Tennessee.


Here is what he had to say about the Wolfpack and the Vols.


“[NC State] they need a point guard next year, so they’re going to give me the keys to the program,” Simons told Zagsblog. “[At Tennessee] I can make a real big impact right away and get them to a higher level because they’re on the verge of becoming big-time.”


Simons said he will take some official visits in January/February, then make a final decision “probably in the spring.”


The 6-3 shooting guard averaged a whopping 23.9 points last season for Edgewater HS (Orlando, FL).


Last spring, Simons averaged a league-leading 22.9 points on 43 percent shooting from three for Team Breakdown on the Under Armour 16’s AAU circuit.


His Team Breakdown coach Kenny Gillion said the top ranked Simons is an explosive player.


“The big thing is he’s a scorer,” coach Gillion told Scout. “He led the under Armour group in scoring. He can score from the perimeter. He’s very athletic and he can score in transition. But he also has the ability to handle and distribute the ball. He had tremendous upside.”


Last month Simons said he may skip college and go directly to the NBA, but he now appears to be focused on a college program.
