Alabama Runningback Nicholas Sims Signs with Toledo

Jason Candle and the Rockets have made it a priority to target the state of Alabama in this recruiting class as they sign runningback Nicholas Sims, a big named back in his state.

Nicholas Sims' offer sheet consisted of Alabama and Ole Miss, yet the Toledo Rockets received a verbal commitment from him on Tuesday, the day prior to National Signing Day. Now, Jason Candle and the Rockets are looking forward to what Sims could be in the Glass City if he reaches his full potential. At five-eleven, 200-pounds, Sims has 4.4 40-yard dash speed but has tremendous balance and power with the ball in his hands as well. The Rockets have shown a lot of love towards Sims, who is a big name in his hometown of Mobile, Alabama. It's time to see if Toledo can help Sims reach his full potential in the Midnight Blue & Gold, if they do, Sims will become another on a long list of great runningbacks.
