'Canes Blow Away Sims & Family

The nation's top prospect, Ernie Sims, took an official visit this weekend to one of the country's top programs - Miami. And Sims and his father left Coral Gables extremely impressed.

"That was a great visit," said his father, Ernie II. "The coaches are outstanding, the campus is great and it has that small school atmosphere. At running back and linebacker, they have some great players on both sides of the ball but their situation is good for Ernie. Coach.

"Coach (Larry) Coker is an incredible man. We were very impressed with him. He is a great Christian man. All the coaches were super.

"You can't go wrong with Miami. We were just blown away. On a scale of one to ten it was a nine."

Sims, from Tallahassee (Fla.) North Florida Christian High School, was scheduled to narrow it down to three schools but that may have to wait because all of his visits have been incredible. Miami was his fourth official. He has also been to Georgia, Florida and Auburn. Later on this month, he will visit Florida State (1-31) and then announce his decision on Signing Day.
