ATH David Sims (6-0 215) of Calhoun County High School has narrowed his list to five schools. USC, Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, and NC State are his top five. He has offers from all five as well as Alabama, North Carolina, Wake Forest, Colorado, Michigan, Oregon, Florida, FSU, Michigan, and Kansas. Sims's recruiter at USC is Shane Beamer and he says that Beamer is in constant contact with him.
He likes USC because of its proximity. "It's close to home. I like that my family would be able to come watch me play." He also likes the coaches. "I get along with all of them pretty well."
Sims says the Gamecocks are recruiting him at running back and, all things considered, that is the position he would prefer to play in college. "I'm being recruited for many different positions. I like running back."
Sims camped at Alabama this summer and said it was just good to get some reps in. He plans on attending the USC/NC State on Thursday at Williams Brice Stadium in Columbia. He has not named a leader and has no timetable for a commitment.
