Alabama has offered Blake Sims, one of the state’s top quarterbacks.
How excited was Sims about the offer? “My family is trying to work out plans where we can go to Alabama on Saturday to meet with [Nick Saban] in person,” Sims said. “It feels great that they wants me. Alabama is a great school, it’s close to home, and they almost made it to the national championship game last year.”
The electrifying Sims has around a dozen offers, including UGA, Michigan, West Virginia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Ole Miss, North Carolina State, and Florida State. Other schools that may be close to offers are South Carolina, Oregon, Central Florida and Auburn.
All the schools except for Georgia have offered Sims strictly at quarterback.
“Georgia said they like me first at quarterback, but they also like me as an ‘athlete,’” Sims said. “It’s cool. Georgia would be the only school that I would change my position for, because I like them a lot and they are close to home.”
Sims said his top three choices are West Virginia, Georgia and Michigan. Sims will go to West Virginia on Sunday, and then travel to Michigan for its spring game on April 11. He is planning to reveal his college decision in May.
