What people are saying: Matt Simms

Louisville coach Bobby Petrino knew he had to have a highly-rated quarterback in the class of 2007, and the Cardinals landed a top prize Saturday when Matt Simms, son of Super Bowl MVP Phil Simms, committed to becoming a Cardinal.

Check out what people are saying around the country about Simms.

Don Bosco Prep offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Nunzio Campanile: "To be honest, he's got the rare combination of a kid that is really talented, but he also has the greatest work ethic of any kid you'll ever meet. He wants to be great. His work ethic and his knowledge of the sport really makes him a special player."

Rivals.com and ESPN recruiting analyst Mike Farrell: "Simms has a live arm and understands the game very well. His accuracy is excellent and he has a bit of mobility, he just needs to handle pressure a bit better and use his quick release to combat blitz packages. Obviously learning from his father (Phil) and brother (Chris), Matt is ahead of many other quarterbacks when it comes to the little things that are hard to teach."
