On Tuesday night, a top high school quarterback recruit decommitted from an SEC program.
Robby Ashford, a four-star quarterback out of Hoover, Ala., initially committed to Ole Miss earlier this summer. However, after the team fired head coach Matt Luke and hired Lane Kiffin, Ashford decided to take his talents elsewhere.
Now another top quarterback recruit has decided to re-open his recruitment.
Four-star quarterback Jeff Sims took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to announce his decommitment from Florida State.
“After much prayer and though…at this time I feel that it is in my best interest to de-commit from FSU. FSU will still be an option for me, but I am reopening my recruitment for this final week,” Sims said.

Sims initially committed to Florida State in February. However, following the program’s decision to fire head coach Willie Taggart, Sims decided to take his talents elsewhere.
Florida State hired former Memphis head coach Mike Norvell as the team’s new head coach. Norvell led the Tigers to a conference title this season and is seen as one of the brightest offensive minds in college football.
He’ll have one less weapon at his disposal when he takes over the Seminoles.
Stay tuned for the latest on Sims’recruiting.
