Sims, ranked #30 overall in the Class of 2006 by Scout.com, would be a major boost for the Spartans' program if they could ultimately land him.
Sims, while listed by many as a small forward, has a classic low post game with drop-steps, up-and-under moves, jump hooks and solid footwork all at his disposal. He would provide a terrific complement to the 2004-05 redshirt freshman frontline trio of Marquise Gray, Goran Suton, and Idong Ibok.
Deshawn is fresh off a trip last weekend to Ann Arbor and still lists Michigan, Oregon and Syracuse along with MSU on his current list of schools. With fellow Michigan recruit Tory Jackson being on the minds of some folks down in South Florida, a possible visit to the University of Miami could also be in the future for Sims as well.
