Phillip Sims, who played in 8 games for UA this past season transferred to UVa saying he needed to be closer to home to support his family. He's from Oscar Smith H.S. in Va. Beach where he was ranked the #2 QB in 2010 by both Rivals and 247.
Chip Kelly --> NFL --> Fired --> Maryland
The hardship is that he was beaten out at Bama.
Yep. He was #2 behind Junior starter, A.J. McCarron. No way Saban benches a QB who just won the Nat'l. Title. He likely wants to show his stuff and then bolt to the League after this season. I'd wager London promised him the job if he transferred and got the NCAA waiver.
If he starts It will be surprising, I thought the UVA Qb played decent last year and earned the chance to start this year.
Pic Sigs are for losers.
Rocco was #109 QB coming out of H.S. Sims was #2. Do the math.
If () Simms wins the job in August, Rocco could redshirt. They also have last year's #2, Watford, and 4 more (two in 2012, two 2013 commits) in the pipeline. At least 2 will likely transfer and/or decommit.
FTR: Simms will have 3 years of eligibility starting this fall, however, he will also be eligible to enter the 2013 Draft since this will be his 3rd year out of H.S.
FWIW: I wouldn't trade any of ours for any of theirs, ..... except maybe Simms.
