CHICAGO – Former Chicago high school star Aaron Simpson has signed a letter of intent to play at DePaul next season.
A 5-foot-11 guard, Simpson played two years of junior college at Lincoln College after a standout career at North Chicago High School.
As a high school senior, he was the state's leading scorer and finished third in the Illinois Mr. Basketball voting behind Jabari Parker of Simeon and Proviso East's Keith Carter. He averaged 26.2 points and led the Warhawks to a runner-up finish in the Class 3A state tournament.
DePaul announced the signing on Thursday.
