The recruiting never stops for Stony Brook.

Seawolves coach Chuch Priore announced the addition of Minnesota transfer Leston Simpson, a 6-3, 255-pound defensive lineman, to the roster. Simpson, a standout at Campus Magnet High School in Queens, will have two years of eligibility.

"Leston will help us fill some spots on the defensive line," Priore said. "We wanted to bring in some guys who have experience that can play right away, which Leston possesses."

Simpson is the third of three players who have transferred to Stony Brook from a FBS school. Running back Marcus Coker (Iowa) and wire receiver Adrian Coxson (Maryland), were announced earlier this year.
