Deyondre Simpson of Parshall is one of those talents that has “potential” written all over him.  The 6-foot-3 wing has a much longer wing span than his listed height and when you consider all the twitter love he has been getting, this guy is expected to be on the verge of big things.

Teammate Wade Baker on Deyondre in open floor:  “He makes it look so easy.  You and I would have to use roller blades or something to do that.”

Minot Daily News Reporter Mark Jones:  “Hard to believe Deyondre is only a sophomore.  He makes everything look so easy.”

Royal McGregor of the Odessa American:  “Simpson finished the state tournament with 22 blocks, that’s an average of 1.8 per quarter.”

PHD: “Great length, long strides, used quick step 1-dribble attack for a two.”

PHD: “Simpson stands 6-foot-3 but the wingspan is much bigger than that.  Moves up the floor very well.”

The final two comments were after PHD watched Simpson play with one of the ECI 16U teams in the spring.  Simpson definitely jumped on college lists showing his potential.

“It was a good experience and seeing all of the good competition,” Deyondre said of playing with ECI.
