    On the Hoof: Sims isn't the biggest back, but he is compact and muscular. He is built like Miami signee Eduardo Clements.
    Needs Improvement: Doing whatever it takes to be durable and stay healthy. Being strong and flexible is a must. He may need to be a little more patient while his blocks set up.
    Most Impressive: He can change directions on a dime, is hard to see when he hits the line of scrimmage, and is an excellent pass receiver out of the backfield. Sims is like a pinball bouncing off defenders as he gains maximum speed on the way to the end zone. His game is a lot like fellow Texan LaDainian Tomlinson.
    Conclusion: Barring an injury, I can see him getting playing time as a freshman. He is pound-for-pound one of the toughest backs in the country. He can also be dangerous as a return man and receiver. He has the makings of an all-conference performer.
