David Sims plays quarterback for his Calhoun County (SC.) High school team. However on the next level many schools are recruiting him as a running back. The school he chose, Kentucky, was one of them.

"All of them are recruiting me as a running back," said Sims when we spoke with him a month ago. Today, he's planning on being a running back for the University of Kentucky.

"Last night I went ahead and decided," said Sims. "I committed to Kentucky about 10 minutes ago," he said. "I knew it was between Kentucky and Tennessee. I thought Kentucky was the best fit for me," said Sims. "South Carolina was still in it, but not as much as Tennessee and Kentucky."

"I went to the Louisville game last year. It was an exciting game. I get along with the coaches very well. I talk to coach (Joker) Phillips more than any other coach," said David.

"It feels good (to have the decision out of the way). I can just go out and play football," said Sims.

The Kentucky staff feels good too. "Coach Phillips was ecstatic. He was hoping he would get me. He knew I would help their class drastically because they needed a running back," said Sims.

Last season for Calhoun County High School, Sims threw for almost 1500 yards and ran for almost 900 more. He also gained 30 touchdowns as a dual-threat quarterback. "I'm a slash type of player. I play quarterback for my high school. I'm just a playmaker," said Sims in a previous interview with KSR.

Sims is a three-star player according to Scout.com.
