Marcus Simms Reinstated for East Carolina
Marcus Simms was suspended for the season opener against Virginia Tech after being charged with his second DUI on August 13th.
Last week, Marcus Simms had his first DUI charges dropped in his home state of Maryland, which was significant for more than just getting back on the field. Simms could have been facing jail time or home confinement with his second DUI charge in Morgantown.
Now the second arrest will be treated as just a first offense and Holgorsen seems pleased.
“He’s ready to roll,” Holgorsen said in today’s press conference. “He gives us that speed that we desperately need on the outside.”
With Simms coming back from suspension, he will be adding to quarterback Will Grier’s arsenal. The Sophomore is poised to have a break-out season with a new gunslinger in town.
