The offers keep coming for Courtney Sims, a skilled 6-10, 222 pound power forward/center from Noble & Greenough H.S. in Denham, Mass. Sims was offered by Connecticut, according to sources close to Sims, who has been competing with BABC at the National AAU event in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
Some of the programs that have watched him this week are Kentucky, Arizona, Memphis, Arkansas, Connecticut, and North Carolina. (to name a few)
Sims is big enough and agile enough to handle himself in the low post. He is slender for sure and will need to strengthen his frame to be a great college player.
Previously, Sims enjoyed a productive week at the Peach Jam too, where he averaged 15.8 points and six rebounds in five games for BABC.
Sims also has offers from George Washington, UMass, Michigan, Providence, Syracuse, Memphis, William & Mary and Boston University. Others who are courting Courtney include Ohio State, Texas Tech, Boston College, Maryland and DePaul. Sources tell us that the schools in the previous line are likely now to offer Sims a free ride too.
Sims averaged 19 points, 10 rebounds and eight blocks per game as a junior at Noble & Greenough. He said he carries a 2.4 GPA in the classroom and has scored a 960 on the SAT, which meets the fully qualified guidelines used by the NCAA.
