In a recent Kentucky.com article, 2015 LSU Basketball commit Ben Simmons said he wants to 'help build the start of something new' at LSU:
quote:

"That's the type of school I want to go to," Simmons said last week. "I want to go to school where I can help build the start of something new. I know they had great players back in the day, you know, like Shaq and Pistol Pete. I just want to be one of those guys that's remembered for helping build LSU."

Simmons was already on the national recruiting radar when he left his home country and came to play for Montverde Academy in Florida midway through his sophomore season. He possesses a blend of size, skill, athleticism and basketball IQ that attracted college scouts early on, and his recruitment picked up even more when he arrived in the United States.
Simmons, who is the No. 1 ranked prospect in the nation according to 247Sports, said that committing to LSU was an easy decision for him to make:
quote:

"I just felt comfortable with LSU," he said. "I just went with my gut. Usually when I go with my gut, it turns out pretty well."
Here is new video of Simmons dominating at the NBPA Top 100 camp last week. He took home the MVP Honors for the entire camp which featured many top prospects.
