Arkansas State picked up its fifth commitment of the year for Coach Hugh Freeze when Texas offensive lineman chose to be a Red Wolf.

Lindale lineman Micah Simmons confirmed with AStateNation.com that a day of being coached by ASU coaches was enough for him to make his decision.

“It’s the right place for me,” Simmons said. “I love the coaching staff, I can see myself being a Red Wolf and a part of Arkansas State. I’m so excited.”

Simmons, a 6-foot-4, 275-pound athlete, received an offer from Arkansas State earlier in the spring.

He made the trip to Jonesboro Thursday to get a first hand look on how it would be being coached by the Red Wolves coaching staff.

“I really connected with Coach (Darren) Hiller,” Simmons said. “The way I was able to work with him today, it was enough for me to know this was the place for me.”

Simmons was impressed with the ASU Campus.

“The campus is awesome, it’s very nice,” Simmons said. “I love the student housing.”

Simmons made it very clear that one of the main reasons he chose Arkansas State was the way Coach Hugh Freeze runs his program.

“He is a man of faith, he has a godly coaching staff and he pushes the family element here,” Simmons said. “That’s very important to me. I love the entire coaching staff.”
