With a new defensive scheme comes new needs on that side of the ball. The Warhawks think they have found a good one in North Gwinnett high school athlete Trey Sims. So much that they have offered Trey a full football scholarship to ULM. If that school sounds familiar, it should as ULM got a 2009 commitment this year from Sims former teammate Robert Nelson.
"Coach Perkins came by the school and just told me that he liked the way I played and I looked good on film. He told me that I could be a real good player for ULM in their defensive scheme and that he would love to have me".
As a junior Sims led the Bulldogs with 7 quarterback sacks and forced fumbles with four. Sims finished 2008 with 64 tackles, nine behind the line of scrimmage.
"I am used to a 3-3-5", said Sims. My coaches like to blitz me out of it and drop me back into coverage and play safety. I don't have a preference, I just want to be on the field. I can line up anywhere".
"I don't know much about ULM yet. I went online and checked them out at their website. They look like a real nice program".
Beside holding an offer from ULM, Sims also have picked up offers from Middle Tennessee, UAB, and South Alabama. "I have been talking to Coach Matthews at Oklahoma State but no offer yet". Central Florida and South Florida have also been by the school".
