Meet Myles Sims
Michigan’s recruiting foray into Georgia continues with Sims, a 4-star cornerback from Westlake High School in Atlanta. He verbally committed to the Wolverines in April.
Sims is the No. 17 cornerback in the nation, according to the 247Sports composite, and will play in the Under Armour All-America Game Jan. 4 in Orlando. He participated in The Opening last summer in Beaverton, Ore. His 40-yard dash time is 4.73 seconds.
Speaking to Rivals.com after his official visit in March, Sims called Michigan “a different breed.”
Sims originally is from Michigan, and his family relocated to Georgia when he was 5.
The 6-foot-2, 175-pound Sims prides himself on his versatility, and he uses his length to his advantage in the backfield.
Sims also boasts quickness and a lengthy wingspan. His nickname is “Spider,” in part because of his rangy arms and his lenghty reach — two assets to playing in the secondary and having the ability to defend passes and players. He’ll join a group of incoming defensive backs that includes Sammy Faustin and twins Germon and Gemon Green. Worth noting about the four: all are at least 6-foot-2, which will help to improve the range of the secondary.
What impressed Sims even more about Michigan was its defense, and where he could play. His versatility will benefit him in the Wolverines’ scheme.
