Simmons jokes that he'll join Fournette on football team

Ben Simmons has a legitimate chance to win the Naismith Award in college basketball this year. The 6’10” forward is blessed with size, humungous hands, other-worldly vision and elite athleticism.  

Sounds like some ideal qualities for an SEC wide receiver to have, right?

In August, head football coach Les Miles joked that Simmons could set the NCAA record for touchdowns if he were to put on a helmet and shoulder pads. But the freshman decided to take the idea to a whole new level with his latest Instagram post.
