(Repost) David Sims Looking To Feel It

(Repost - technical snafu the first time?) The two-way star for Calhoun County South Carolina updates GoBlueWolverine on his recruitment: what he's looking for, who still remains on his list, and when he may make a decision. Is U-M still in the running?

David Sims (6-0, 210), Scout.com's number 38 ranked safety from St. Matthew's HS in Calhoun COunty South Carolina, has drawn interest from top programs all across the nation. Michigan, Alabama, Florida State, Georgia Tech, and Tennessee are just a few of the names who've extended offers to the Palmetto State star.

"I think I have 13 or 14 offers right now," he told GoBlueWolverine. "I'm not sure. Right now I really can't tell (who's recruiting the hardest). Sometimes the coaches are on vacation, so I really can't tell you right now."

Out of all those offers, no one has separated themselves in the race for Sims signature come February.

"I grew up a fan of Florida State, but everyone has a shot, including Michigan. Michigan, Oregon, Kansas, NC State, Tennessee, Florida State, Georgia Tech, South Carolina. They all have a great shot."

With Sims still so wide open, and not having a very busy summer with camps or visits, what will he be looking for when he does start to dwindle down his list?

"I was at the Bama camp like a week or two ago. I think I might go to the FSU camp – I've got to talk to my coach. But I think I'm going to use one of my officials to go up to Michigan."

Having never been to Michigan as of yet, what is it about the Maize and Blue that really attracts David enough to spend one of his 5 official visits to Ann Arbor?

"All the wins they've had" stated Sims. "They lead the NCAA in wins, and they have 110,000 fans at every game, even in snow or hail. It's a good program."

As far as the factors in his decision, Sims said, "I just want to look at the school, go somewhere where I can make plays happens. Like academics, you're going to get a good education wherever you go. The decision overall is just tough. You've got to be able to get along with the coaches and players. You got to go to a school where you're going to be happy."

So when can we expect a decision from the young star from South Carolina?

"I don't have a deadline, not right now. I guess when I feel it and I just know it, that's when I'm going to decide."

The confident Sims describes himself as a player this way: "I'm a smart player. A lot of people have the same athletic ability, but they don't think the game like me. I'm good with the ball in my hands and I have the ability to make plays."
