Good timing for Simmons 

March, 25, 2012
LOS ANGELES -- It wasn’t much of a news item recently when former walk-on Hunter Simmons elected to rejoin the USC football team for the spring semester.

Simmons (6-foot-1, 240 pounds) had been a walk-on fullback for the Trojans since 2009, but hadn’t seen much game action and left the team in the middle of last season.

Yet when the Trojans took the Coliseum field for practice on Saturday, it was Simmons who was pulling double-duty at tight end and fullback while taking part in every play of the practice.
