Plant City Raiders star Matt Simpson is taking his talents to Temple Terrace.

Simpson, a senior guard for the school's basketball team, signed his letter of intent to play at Florida College in the fall on Thursday at the school's media center. The signing came less than a week after he announced his commitment to play for the Falcons on his Twitter account.

In his final season, Simpson led the Raiders with 19.8 points, 2.2 assists and 1.7 steals per game, as well as 81% shooting at the free throw line, tied for a team-high 56% shooting from the field and also knocked down 40% of his three-point attempts. He was awarded Tampa Bay Basketball Coaches Association Player of the Year and Hillsborough County Public Schools Mac McGahagin Academic Athletic Basketball honors and made the FACA South Boys All-Star team. He also played in the Hillsborough County vs. Pinellas County All-Star Game on March 22.
