David Sims is a three-star athlete from St. Matthews (S.C.) Calhoun County. Sims, 5-11 and 205 pounds, committed to Kentucky back in September. That changed on Friday. Now he's a Yellow Jacket.
"I went to Georgia Tech for the Miami game," Sims said. "That was actually the third time I was there for a game. It's closer to home, Georgia Tech is a better fit for me and I think the program is headed in just a better direction. I also love the coaching staff, especially coach Bohanan. The others are great too and I get along with everyone.
"I also love the city of Atlanta and it's a place where I feel real comfortable. Plus, a degree from Georgia Tech is pretty special and it would be great to fall back on if football doesn't work out."

He may have changed his decision from Kentucky to Georgia Tech but for Sims it was still a difficult decision and even harder to tell the UK staff.
"Yeah, that was hard, especially when I am the not the type pof person to back out on my word. I spoke with coach (Joker) Phillips and he wished me the best."
