Memphis (Tenn.) Whitehaven cornerback Darrius Sims will be one of the many recruits to decend on Vanderbilt's campus for their big game against Florida this weekend.
The three-star defensive back said he's solid to the Commodores, and is looking forward to getting back on campus for a real game day experience.
"Everything has been going good," he said. "I'm going to go this weekend for the Florida game and the following week as well."

Sims has been an integral part of Whitehaven's 7-0 start to the season, recording 25 tackles and one interception on defense, while also contributing a handful of touchdowns as a receiver.
"I can't get worn down," Sims said of playing both ways. "I'm well conditioned so I now how to come back and make sure I'm in shape to play the whole game."
Both of his visits to Vanderbilt over the next few weeks will be unofficial trips and with Whitehaven looking to make a deep playoff run, Sims plans to save his official for after the season.
"I will be taking my official visit to Vanderbilt in late January," he said.
Despite his firm status with Vanderbilt, Sims is also planning an official to visit and is leaving the door open for others as well.
"I'm going to try to take all five of mine," he said. "I know I'm taking an official to Vanderbilt and Ole Miss but the others are up in the air."
Sims said he's been paying close attention to how the Commodores have been playing and can't wait until his class arrives on campus.
"I think I can have a good impact when I get there on defense," he said. "I think when my class comes in we can start off on the right track. They're not doing too bad, but we can come in and help."
