Cameron Sims already has a handful of offers under his belt and he's hopeful two more are coming from two of the hottest programs in college football right now.
"ULM, Northwestern State, Southern Miss, Southern and Washington have offered," Sims said.
Missing from the list – for now anyway – are the two schools that have Sims' attention the most.
"My top two are LSU and Alabama," he said. "I went to LSU's camp this month. I didn't go in June because I was busy with AAU basketball. LSU's camp went like most all the others: No DB could hold me.
"I average 18 points per game in basketball. We lost in the second round of the playoffs this past season. I had 17 catches for 500 yards with six touchdowns last year in football."
The frontrunners for Sims – LSU and Alabama – should come as no surprise to recruiting fans.
"LSU is real close to home," Sims said. "That's one thing about it. With Alabama it's pretty much their history of championships (that's attractive)."
Sims camped with 2014 offensive lineman Cameron Robinson at both TCU and Texas earlier this year. Robinson, who was teammates with Sims last year at Ouachita, has been the subject of transfer rumors. The popular theory emanating from northeast Louisiana is that Robinson will soon transfer to West Monroe.
The Robinson rumors have caught fire since Wednesday night.
Sims, who was interviewed Wednesday prior to word surfacing about Robinson, talked about his summer trip to the Lone Star State.
At the time Sims didn't mention anything about Robinson, other than to praise the big left offensive tackle.
"We might go to the same school," Sims said when asked about the likelihood that he'll reunite with Robinson on the next level.
"No defensive back could hold me at TCU or Texas. The coaches told me to keep doing what I've been doing. I put myself in position to catch the ball. I'm going after the football.
"I'll dive, jump, whatever. There's no way I'm not going to let the defensive back catch the football. I also take pride in my blocking ability. I don't want the quarterback getting hurt because I fail to block."
Ouachita was knocked out of the 2011 Class 5A playoff bracket by the Carencro Bears (28-24) in a second-round slugfest. As a sophomore, Sims caught 16 passes for 368 yards and 4 TDs.
"We lost (quarterback) Quentin Wheeler (to graduation) but we have a new quarterback who is real talented," Sims said. "We also have (2013 WR) Taijuan Thomas. He's fast and very athletic."
