Simmons announced he was transferring from Texas Tech in late May. He also visited Miami and had been connected to both Pittsburgh and Penn State -- he's from Pennsylvania -- before choosing USC.
Simmons was a five-star recruit in the 2011 class who originally signed with North Carolina before being granted a release and moving on to Texas Tech. He started all 13 games for the Red Raiders in 2012, finishing the year with 27 tackles, six tackles for loss and two sacks.
As per NCAA rules, Simmons will have to sit out the 2013 season and will have two years of eligibility remaining starting in the 2014 season.
