2020 Florida State football commit Jeff Sims has been doing a lot of cheerleading for the ’Noles since committing on February 2nd. Sims (6’3, 195) has championed FSU to several fellow recruits since making his verbal pledge to play his college ball in Tallahassee.
And now — finally— Sims, of Jacksonville’s Sandalwood High School, is seeing some of that fanfare return, in the form of national rankings. A rather off-the-radar prospect when he committed to the Seminoles, Sims quickly earned a three-star quarterback ranking after his pledge to Florida State. But that got a boost recently, when he moved way up the ESPN ratings.
Sims is now a four-star QB recruit according to ESPN, vaulting up their rankings to 126th overall and the fourth-rated dual-threat quarterback in the country, behind just Haynes King, an uncommitted prospect from Texas, Hudson Card, another Lone Star State signal-caller who’s pledged to the Longhorns, and Bryce Young, a USC commit from California. 247 Sports deems Sims a prostyle prospect— and the eighth best in the nation. Bigger picture? Sims is now a composite four-star, blue-chip prospect, across the four major services.
