Nebraska Football: Dual-threat QB Jeff Sims commits to Huskers

Nebraska football made a commitment from quarterback Jeff Sims on Sunday afternoon, adding to what has been a busy weekend for the program. He made the announcement on Twitter.

Sims committed to Georgia Tech originally as a four-star recruit. Injuries followed him to Georgia Tech, but he ended up putting together a productive career. He threw for 44,64 yards, 30 touchdowns, and 23 interceptions in three seasons with the program.

He can also rush a little bit. He has 1,152 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns on 277 attempts in his collegiate career.

This is another big commitment for a Nebraska football 2023 recruiting class that is filling up. The class itself ranks 50th overall nationally, and 53rd in the 247Sports composite rankings. It has a transfer rank of 18th, which has increased steadily over the past couple days.

What can he bring to Nebraska Football?

Sims has a unique combination of arm strength and speed. Those two skill sets will be particularly effective in run-pass option situations. This is the type of offense that the coaching staff wants to run, and Sims has the type of skill set to do it.   He is comfortable in the pocket, and can step up and make a throw when he needs to.

It will be intriguing to see what the Nebraska football program does with his speed. It allows for the program to be able to try many different things on offense. Sims provides a little bit more versatility than current quarterback Casey Thompson does, and that could be a positive thing in today’s era of offensive-minded college football.
