"You know it's pretty much a four-way tie between TCU, Purdue, Kansas, and Texas Tech."
While Mims might be getting calls and letters daily, he is trying to focus all of his attention on Stony Point's post-season run. Much like last time BigPurpleNation.com talked with the 2009 recruit, Mims is very impressed with the TCU defense.
"They have that defense up there. I'm pretty impressed," said Mims. "I'm sorry they had to lose to Utah, but I'm still pulling for them and liking them. It's a real good program that has been good for the past couple of years."
When asked what the other schools that were in his favorites brought to the table, Mims replied:
Kansas and Texas Tech- "When it comes to Kansas and Tech, I'm used to growing up to Big 12 football so that is all I know."
Purdue- "They always seem to have a top lineman going into the draft every year. They seem to put players into positions to get noticed that they can have success."
Even though schools like (#15) TCU and (#2) Texas Tech have offered, Mims is not quick to make a decision based on recent success in the polls.
"In college football anybody can lose at anytime. Anybody can get beat at any given moment," said the senior. "You can go by the rankings but it doesn't mean anything to me."
When the defensive end does decide to narrow his list down even more, there will be several things he looks at. One of the biggest for Mims, is the relationship between himself and the coaching staff.
"My main focus is that if I can get on to the field and play that is a plus, but I want to feel comfortable with my coaches. I want to feel that the coaches are putting me into a position that I can play and have success."
After a solid junior season, which included a 14-5A All-District selection, Mims has improved his stats and getting even more attention from schools. Through ten games, the senior has 7-sacks, 50-tackles, and 3-pass deflections.
Currently RR Stony Point is 9-1 and the top seed in the Class 5A Division 1 playoffs. It's only the school's second-ever post-season appearance, but teams are teams and coaches are taking notice.
"It's going good. We are sitting as the #1 seed in coming out of districts heading into the playoffs… I would like to think that I'm doing pretty good and contributing to the team so far."
RR Stony Point will open the playoffs at Round Rock Independents School District Stadium against Langham Creek Friday night.
"They(Langham) are not as impressive as I thought they were going to be," said Mims. "But I think they are team that if you don't pay attention they can come get you."
TexasPrepInsider.com is predicting that RR Stony Point will face Skyline in the Region II championship and win the contest. They are giving them a 30% chance to win the state title.
