Ernie Sims made an in-studio appearance Wednesday on Fox Sports Net South's Countdown to Signing Day and the nation's top prospect still is considering all five schools -- Auburn, Georgia, Florida, Florida State and Miami.

He was hoping to narrow it down to three schools.

"Honestly, they are all even," said Sims. "It is still the same - Auburn, Georgia, Florida, FSU and Miami. I have had four great visits with FSU coming up (Jan. 31)."

Sims will not make any visits this weekend. Instead, he will go with classmates on a school vacation. Then next weekend, he will make his last official visit which happens to be Florida State.

UF coach Ron Zook will make an in-home visit with Sims tonight. Next Thursday, when Sims gets back from his trip, Mark Richt will make an in-home visit before he makes his official visit to FSU. Tuesday, Auburn was in his house for an in-home visit and UM coach Larry Coker also was in town and attended NFC's basketball game -- Sims' younger brother Marcus plays on the junior varsity squad.

Sims will make his decision on National Signing Day.
