Spending time with Coach Dameyune Craig and learning more about Auburn, Sims says there is plenty to like about the Tigers at the moment.
"I got a good vibe with all of the coaches," the 6-4, 203 Sims says. "They are really good to hang with. The players really get along with each other. It's a family team at Auburn.
"Coach Craig put E.J. Manuel in the league and nobody thought he was going to be a first-rounder," he adds. "He was telling people that Manuel was going to go that high and everybody thought he was crazy. That proves he knows what he's talking about."
With offers from many of the top teams in the country including Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and USC among others, Sims says he's not in a rush to make a decision until later this summer, but when he starts to narrow things down the Tigers will be on his list.
"I still have an open mind, but when I start narrowing down my top schools Auburn will be in the mix," Sims says. "I will probably do that at the end of the summer after visiting all the schools. I will probably narrow it down to a top five."
Learning more about Gus Malzahn and his offensive attack while also checking out the campus and facilities, Sims notes that he likes the potential fit for him should he choose the Tigers.
"Obviously, they have a new coach and he's going to do some nice things," Sims says. "When he was at Arkansas State they had a winning season. They're going to throw the ball and the SEC really hasn't seen that yet, a team that throws the ball a lot. They're going to be surprised."
A busy man between now and the start of his senior season, Sims says he plans to visit Mississippi State and Ole Miss the next two days before going to Georgia this weekend for a camp. He also hopes to visit Nebraska as well this summer before narrowing his list of colleges of interest.
