Q & A with Marcus Sims

One of the top athletes in the Southeast resides in Tallahassee (Fla.) North Florida Christian. The 6-foot-2 and 220 pound running back/linebacker has several big-time offers, including Florida State, Miami and many more.


The Territory.org caught up with Marcus Sims who recently released his top seven favorite schools.

What are your top seven schools?

They are Florida State, Miami, Auburn, Tennessee, Georgia, Southern Cal and LSU.

How many offers do you have now and who are they from?

I have nine offers. All of the schools that I named in my top seven have offered except Miami. Maryland, Iowa State and Alabama have also offered.

Can you tell me what you like about each team in your top seven and what factors came down to choosing those seven?

FSU- I'm from Tallahassee and I like Coach Steele. I like the scheme they run on defensive and it's a great program with great players that I could compete with.

Miami- They are a great program even though they got the best of Florida State lately. I like that they play aggressive.

Auburn- Obviously, they had a great year. I like Coach Tuberville and I like the way they play.

Tennessee- I like that they have a stadium that seats over 100,000 fans.

Georgia- I really liked Coach Richt when he was at Florida State. Coach Calloway is a great guy. I got a chance to talk with him when he was recruiting my brother.

When are you planning on narrowing down your list even more?

Probably in the fall I will narrow it down to a top five.

Are you open to playing on both sides of the ball in college?

Yes, I am.

What is Florida State recruiting you as?

They haven't said yet.

Who is recruiting you from Florida State?

Coach John Lilly is recruiting me from there.

What is your brother Ernie telling you about the program? Is he encouraging you to come or does want to go down your own path?

We really haven't talked that much about it. But, I'm sure he would tell me to go where my heart tells me to go.

What would be a couple of factors in choosing a school?

Coaches, depth, environment, and academics will be factors.
