Sims receptive of Irish offer

Notre Dame offered Scout 100 wide receiver Cameron Sims of Monroe (La.) Ouachita Parish on Monday, and the 6-foot-4, 225-pound wide out explains how Notre Dame plans to use him and when he thinks the Irish will get a visit.

Wide receiver Cameron Sims of Monroe (La.) Ouachita Parish was one of three wide outs offered by Notre Dame on Monday. He's also one of three wide outs that Notre Dame has offered in the state of Louisiana.

"My high school coach told me that Notre Dame was offering today [Tuesday]," Sims said. "I know they were just in the running for the national championship and I know Notre Dame is a good school, but I don't know too much other than that."

As of right now, Sims said Notre Dame will likely get an official visit.

"I'm pretty sure I'll be going to Notre Dame on an official visit, unless something changes," Sims said.

Notre Dame assistant coach Kerry Cooks painted the picture in Sims' mind of three Bayou wide outs dawning a Notre Dame jersey.

"Coach Cooks told me that I fit the program very well," Sims said. "He said that I would play on the outside, and Trey Quinn and Malachi Dupre would play slot and we would really dominate. I know Trey and Malachi a little from camps and 7 on 7."

Sims said his speed his deceptive because of his frame, but that often plays in his advantage.

"Guys down here in the South look at me as slow before we step on the field because I'm 6-foot-4, 225, but on the field they realize I'm actually fast," Yeargin said. "Guys down here are either big and slow or small and fast, but I'm big and I'm pretty fast. I run well and can create something in a small space."

Sims says leaving Louisiana is a foreseeable option, and he was supposed to visit the Tide last week, but he couldn't make it.

"I couldn't make it to Alabama last weekend, something came up, but I'll get over there soon."

"Going out-of-state doesn't bother me," Sims said. "All the out-of-state schools are the same right now. I want to find the best school for me. The main thing for me will be academics. My mom pushes me hard in school."

Sims is playing recruiting by ear, and not making any set-in-stone plans.

"I want to take some official visits, but I don't really know when I'll make my decision," Sims said. "I'll know when I know."

Sims is a four-star prospect and ranked as the No. 13 wide receiver in the 2014 class. He was offered yesterday by the Irish along with Manalapan (N.J.) High Saeed Blacknall and Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek Demarre Kitt.
