Sims Sets Florida Visit

<B>Ernie Sims</B>, the nation's top prospect, has set up an official visit to the University of Florida. Last weekend, he took his first official visit to UGA.

Ernie Sims is the nation's top prospect. The senior from Tallahassee (Fla.) North Florida Christian took his first official visit last weekend.

"The trip to UGA was great," said Sims. "It was my first time there and I was surprised. The players and coaches are great and they all get along so well. The fans were so great at the game. I also realized that I can play at Georgia. Coach Richt explained to me that they need running backs and linebackers. They will leave the choice to me. At Georgia, they also have a good vet school and I can get a great education."

Sims, a linebacker and running back, will visit Florida (12-13) in two weeks and also visit Auburn, Miami and Florida State in January. He is no longer looking at Tennessee. With the in-home visits cranking up this week, Auburn will be in his house on Wednesday, FSU on Thursday, Georgia next Tuesday, Florida next Wednesday and Auburn again next Thursday. Sims will announce his decision on Signing Day. North Florida Christian got knocked out of the playoffs in round two. They had previously won four straight state titles.
