Andre Sims Jr. Released To Pursue Options

After four years at Michigan State, Andre Sims Jr. is leaving East Lansing with a degree in his hand and hopes of finishing his football career at another university. On Tuesday, Sims was granted his release in a statement from the university.

Wide receiver Andre Sims Jr. was granted his release from Michigan State University on Tuesday allowing for the Snellville, Georgia native to look for a new home.

With competition stiff this year, it was unlikely the 5-foot-9, 190-pound Sims would find much playing time outside of special teams. He leaves with his degree from the school and the praise of Mark Dantonio.

“The fact Andre completed his degree in four years is a testament to his work ethic,” Dantonio said. “He’s a quality person, and we wish him the best of luck as he enters his final season of competition.”

After earning Big Ten All-Freshman Team honors from in 2012, Sims saw his role limited on offense as MacGarrett Kings Jr. and R.J. Shelton emerged in the Spartans offensive attack. He earned three letters during his time wearing the Green and White and there was no announcement of where he’ll look to use his final year of eligibility.

Sims came to Michigan State as part of the 2011 recruiting class ranked as a three-star cornerback by Scout.
