Four-star Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) Dillard defensive tackle Pat Sims expects to choose between his top two schools on Tuesday.
"That's my plan right now," he said. "It's either Auburn or Rutgers. Right now, they're pretty even.
"I like the tradition at Auburn and the competition in the SEC. They also have some defensive linemen leaving, so I'd have a chance to go in and play early.
"Rutgers has an even stronger chance for me to play, and I like my position coach a lot. He's done a good job recruiting me."
Sims (6-4, 280, 4.8) also has offers from Ole Miss, N.C. State, Florida and Ohio State, among others. He is rated the No. 20 defensive tackle in the nation by Rivals.com.
As a senior, he recorded 65 tackles, 20 tackles for loss and 12 sacks.
