"Last week I visited Miami," linebacker-running back Marcus Sims said. "It was a nice environment and the coaches there are real nice. Coach Solinger is looking to sign two running backs this year."
The younger brother of Seminole linebacker Ernie Sims has also been to several Florida State games as well.
"I'm going to the Florida State-Syracuse game," he said. "Florida State is recruiting me at linebacker."
Sims also has plans to also visit Georgia, Auburn, LSU and Tennessee.
What is he looking for in a school?
"Right now I have a preference to play running back but that could change as the year goes on," he said. "Some schools are looking at me at running back while others want me at linebacker. "I'm looking at each school's depth charts and I want to choose a college that will be the right fit. Early playing time is also a factor."
The Tallahassee standout is off to an outstanding start in his senior campaign. In four games played, he has rushed for 587 yards and seven touchdowns with 9.8 yards per carry average. On defense Sims has recorded 42 tackles, six for a loss and three forced fumbles.
