Sims, a former four-star composite recruit out of Jacksonville’s Sandalwood High, was in a four-way battle for the starting nod. He beat out fellow freshmen Jordan Yates and Tucker Gleason, along with last year’s starter, redshirt sophomore James Graham.
Several on the Georgia Tech beat thought that Gleason may have had the inside track for the job in fall camp. Graham threw for over 1,100 yards last season with 12 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. But Graham was recruited as a flexbone quarterback and under Geoff Collins the Yellow Jackets have moved to a more modern offensive scheme.
Florida State and Georgia Tech will open their seasons against each other tomorrow at 3:30pm.
