Yo Murphy has his hands on Alabama players for another offseason.

The highly esteemed trainer from Tampa (Fla.) is working with Jalen Milroe, DeVonta Smith, and others — including Ty Simpson — this summer.

Simpson, a redshirt sophomore, had the best spring game — stats wise — of the quarterback room.

He has gotten sharper with his mechanics and his mental clock is faster now. Simpson unleashed the ability to extend plays in the A-Day game that he had throughout high school at Westview. He wants to help Kalen DeBoer win a national championship, and the team trusts him behind Milroe. Simpson shared a few photos to his Instagram story of him working with Murphy. He has gotten bigger physically too.

It is going to be fun to see this quarterback room once fall camp starts in August.
