Uninterrupted: Ben Simmons Tells LSU Football Coach Les Miles He Can Play WR

August 20, 2015


After hearing that LSU football coach Les Miles wants him to suit up for his team this fall, Tigers basketball star Ben Simmons made it known that he can play wideout.

But he isn't a fan of wearing a helmet.

Last week, per Jerit Roser of the Times-Picayune, Miles said there'd be a spot on his squad for Simmons if the basketball player can prove that he can catch. Assuming that's the case, the coach believes his system would allow the 6'10" Simmons to set the NCAA record for touchdowns.

Word got back to Simmons that Miles is interested in getting him on the field on Saturdays. In his Uninterrupted video, the freshman responded to the football coach by saying that he could line up at receiver.
