Founder & Sometimes Contributor
ACCBasketballRecruiting.com is the brainchild of Arlen Simmons, a lifelong basketball and ACC fanatic. Originally Arlen managed this site by himself, but now he is primarily an article contributor.
“My goal is to provide updates and information regarding basketball players being recruited by ACC schools or in ACC states. There are a lot of players who I don’t mention, but I really just wanted to create a grouping of information regarding ACC recruits. If the #1 player in the country has never indicated he is looking at a single ACC school in any way, I’m not going to spend much time posting about him (unless he’s super awesome and I feel I just have to share) OR if he is in a state near an ACC school, just in case some there’s some kid people should be aware of.”
This site is for entertainment purposes only, and that we are not projecting player’s intentions or guaranteeing anything, just offering our personal opinions or facts as reported by the players themselves.
The best way to contact Arlen is by email: We don’t like SPAM, so use this busted-up email address:
‘asimmons’ at ‘smartmarketnetwork.com’.
Just replace the at with ‘@’, you know the deal.
