Four-star quarterback Jeff Sims is keeping Florida State in the mix.
But on Wednesday he backed off his commitment to FSU, leaving a gaping hole in the Seminoles’ 2020 class. Sims, a Jacksonville Sandalwood star who is considered one of the top quarterbacks in Florida, made the announcement on Twitter on Wednesday.
“After much prayer and thought … at this time I feel it is in my best interest to de-commit from FSU,” Sims wrote. “FSU will still be an option for me, but I am reopening my recruitment for this final week.”
FSU has not landed a high school quarterback signee in the 2018 or ’19 class. The Seminoles do not have a quarterback commitment for the 2020 class, although they are pursuing Kade Renfro from Texas.
The Seminoles have also extended an offer to Valdosta (Ga.) three-star quarterback Tate Rodemaker, he announced on Twitter on Wednesday. Rodemaker is committed to South Florida.
And Madison (Miss.) Central three-star quarterback Jimmy Holiday also reported an offer from FSU, he said on Twitter. Holiday is committed to TCU.
The Seminoles have four quarterbacks on the 2019 roster: James Blackman, Jordan Travis, Alex Hornibrook and Wyatt Rector. Hornibrook, as a graduate transfer, will be moving on.
