Sims to OU in Time for Classes?

One question that has been burning up the message boards is if safety David Sims, who ill be a JUCO transfer, will be able to enroll at OU in time to keep his scholarship. Coach Stoops put most of those questions to rest this morning when he said that he expects him to be in Norman in time for fall classes.

The David Sims saga is one that will probably not end until he actually steps foot inside a classroom at the University of Oklahoma, but Bob Stoops admitted this morning in his press conference that he does indeed expect the talented safety to make it on board.

"David is one guy who is still finishing up some class work, but is expected to be here when school starts," Stoops said.

Sims was a talented return man with blazing speed a Butte College, and he could factor in to the teams punt return and kick return plans, but due to the fact he will be so behind it is pretty unclear what role, if any, he will play this season.

"Hopefully," Stoops responded when asked about the possibility he could chip in on some return work. "It is going to be tough for him missing this much, but once he has his feet solid on the ground and everything is in place, David was awfully good at it as well."

"He is one of those guys that has a real knack for it as well."
