Top FCS prospect passes away

April 17, 2024

Top FCS prospect passes away … The real world intruded on the build up to next week’s draft with word that star Albany DE AJ Simon, one of the better FCS prospects in the 2024 class, passed away earlier today from an undisclosed cause. Simon, who was considered to be a late-round or free agent candidate, posted 12.5 sacks last fall as he helped Albany to a conference championship and a berth in the FCS national semi-finals. Simon was 25. Our condolences to his family, friends and teammates.
