Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure lineman Andrew Sims (6-4, 260) was one of the more impressive players we saw during the Seraphs contest with Oaks Christian.
Sims is a physical and athletic tackle, and can move very well. Running back Darrell Scott used Sims’ blocks to spring for a big game. So its no surprise that Sims is getting some serious attention from different schools.
“Nevada has offered me, but I’m also hearing from Florida State, UCLA, Boise State, San Diego State and Miami. I’m not sure what other schools are really looking at me, Washington maybe. Schools say they like me as a tackle because of my athletic ability.”
Sims said four schools are leading his list.
“My top four schools are Boise State, Nevada, UCLA and Florida State,” said Sims. “I’ll keep my options open to all schools, but if I get the offers I really want, and I see something nice, I could commit early. Or I could wait until Signing Day.”
This summer, Sims camped at UCLA, his lone camp other than the Scout.com Combine, but he said much of it was spent adjusting to a Seraphs program that no longer had Jon Mack as the head coach.
“It was tough, but we’ll be fine. We’re making adjustments. We’ve got a pretty good team,” said Sims.
A team, though, that suffered their first loss of the year last weekend to Crespi. Still, the Seraphs are the favorites to represent Southern California in the D-III State Bowl Game, provided they pick up where they left off after a bye.
Sims said he didn’t have any official visits set, but wants to take a few.
Academically, he has a 2.5 GPA and scored an 840 on the SAT in the two-parter.
