Sims weighing future football options
Update: Charles Sims releases a statement to CougarsDen.com
“It is with regret and deep humbling, that I am ending my playing career at the University of Houston. I have a lot of great memories that I will carry with me forever. I want to thank the University of Houston for allowing the opportunity to be a part of its football program.
I have worked extremely hard while I have been here at U of H and made every attempt to carry myself in a manner that would reflect the utmost integrity upon the school and this program.
I don’t know what my next step will be. I have one more year of eligibility, therefore I may look to play (1) more year of college football or I may enter the NFL Supplemental Draft later this year.
My family and I will continue to discuss my options and we will make a decision in the near future.”
The Cougars’ leading rusher senior Charles Sims is weighing his options about his football future, the University announced.
Rivals.com reports that Sims is leaving the program.
“We congratulate Charles on receiving his degree last week and becoming a Cougar for life. He has been a leader for our program both on and off the field with a number of accomplishments,” said UH head coach Tony Levine.
Sims, a potential first or second round pick, rushed for 851 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. He missed five games and the Cougars compiled a 1-4 record in his absences.
UH had no further comment.
