A standout from the Texas Tar Heels this year at the 17U level was Kason Simpson. The 6’4” guard has just started up his senior year at Liberty Christian School and attract some college interest for himself. 

Last month, he received his first athletics offer from Nebraska Wesleyan University, who is a power at the division three level having won the 2018 national championship. His offer came on a visit to the Lincoln, Nebraska campus. 

“What I love about Wesleyan is the environment of Lincoln, being in a college town makes you feel involved with everything going on. Wesleyan also has a great coaching staff…they really got to show me what a day in the life of a college athlete would look like,” Simpson said.

Over the past two years, Simpson has been one of the more versatile and impactful players on the NY2LA Association. “I feel I’m a true position less player,” he first said to describe his own game. “I love bringing the ball up court but I’m also comfortable down low. I would say my shooting ability from deep is my best attribute, but I can also showcase my passing and rebounding ability in game as well.” In addition to his versatility and shooting, Simpson has good bounce and feel to his game. With all his tools, look for him to continue to attract college interest over the course of his senior season. 

Before he finishes off his high school career, Simpson is looking to make a deep run into the playoffs with “a state championship has to be the ultimate goal.”
