Delvon Simmons, who started all 13 games in 2012 for Texas Tech, has been granted his release by the Red Raiders and will transfer. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound defensive tackle is visiting Miami for an official visit, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com.
Simmons, a McKeesport, Pa., native, is also considering USC, Penn State and Pittsburgh. Simmons took an official visit to USC last week.
The former five-star recruit had initially signed with North Carolina but was granted a release and enrolled at Texas Tech, picking the Red Raiders over USC two years ago.
