David Sims, the athletic quarterback and safety from Calhoun County High School in Saint Matthews, South Carolina spoke with Scout.com about what is new in his recruiting process. When we last spoke, he had Kentucky, Georgia Tech, and South Carolina as his top three. Now there are only two left and one school is making ground on the other.

David, when we last spoke you had two teams, Kentucky and Georgia Tech almost dead even with South Carolina a distant third. Has anything changed?

"Yes sir, there has been a change. I've dropped South Carolina altogether and Georgia Tech has gained some ground in my eyes."

What has made Georgia Tech gain that ground?

"I saw where they picked up commits from Antonio Foster, Demond Dennis, Orwin Smith, and Stephen Hill. The fact Georgia Tech is recruiting me as a quarterback and then getting guys like that makes them more attractive."

Has Georgia Tech pulled ahead of Kentucky?

"I can't say that just yet, as I'd like to make a visit to each and see where they both stand. Both have been recruiting me hard and both want me at quarterback. I want to see them one more time if I can and whichever school I feel offers me the best future both on the playing field and academically, that will be the one I choose."

Do you have those visits set up?

"No sir, not right now and I don't know when I will get a chance to as I am really concentrating on helping my team win the state title. Then I will be playing in the all star game at the beginning of December.

You were supposed to go to the Kentucky game last weekend, did you make it?

"No sir, I didn't. I had other plans that kept me from going. I'm not sure I will be able to see a Kentucky game this late in the year."


Dale's Take:
David spoke highly of the recent pickups Georgia Tech received this week and he is genuinely torn between the two schools. I do know that he will make the best decision for himself after looking at everything Georgia Tech or Kentucky has to offer. He wants to be successful not only on the field but in the class room. He wants his degree to mean something and to provide for him after football is over. David and I have promised to keep in touch with one another and he says he will call me when he has a definite decision on his choice of school.
