The nation's top prospect, Ernie Sims, took an official visit to Florida this weekend. Sims, from Tallahassee (Fla.) North Florida Christian High School, will not be doing any interviews with the media this week but I did get a chance to catch up with his father about their trip to Gainesville.

"The visit went very well," said his father, Ernie Sims. "Florida did a great job and they have an outstanding program. We just realized what a great vet school they have. Ernie got along with everyone there and Florida will let him play either (running back or linebacker) position. We like Florida and they have as good as shot as anyone."

Gavin Dickey, former quarterback from Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln, was Ernie's host. Sims will visit Florida State (1-10), Auburn (1-17) and Miami (1-31) in January. Sims has already taken an official visit to Georgia. He plans on making a decision on Signing Day.
