In one of his recent blog posts, The Oklahoman’s Brandon Chatman writes about Abilene, Texas running back Herschel Sims. Sims is one of the most anticipated additions to Oklahoma State’s 2011 recruiting class.
“Sims looks like a excellent fit for the Cowboys new offense. He’s a slashing runner with superb quickness, vision and patience. You can tell he just has a natural, instinctive ability to run the ball. One thing that sticks out about Sims is his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and look comfortable running routes and catching the ball.
That’s what seems to separate Sims from a lot of elite high school running backs. He shows his versatility in catching the ball while at the same time displaying tough running and breakaway ability. It’s easy to see why he’s an elite prospect, Cowboy fans should be doing cartwheels about his commitment.” (http://blog.newsok.com/osu/2010/05/10/the-next-great-cowboy-rb/)
