Redshirt freshman defensive back Troy Simon announced today on his Twitter feed that he will be transferring from Wake Forest.
WAKE FOREST TRANSFER… RECRUITMENT NOW REOPENED. MAJOR LOVE FOR WFU FOR EVERYTHING THEY’VE DONE FOR ME. THANK YOU. REDSHIRT PRACTICE FILM: pic.twitter.com/8YSMSBuIBW— GODS.PLAN (@Troy___Simon) December 6, 2017
Simon was a consensus three-star recruit coming out of Milton High School in Georgia in the 2017 class. He chose Wake over offers from Notre Dame, Mississippi State, and California.
He was ranked as the 75th safety nationally by ESPN, but also a very good corner as well.
He did not play this year at all as he took a redshirt year. Meanwhile there were a couple of other freshmen in the Wake Forest secondary in Ja’Sir Taylor and Coby Davis who did get some playing time this year.
