After just one season with the Virginia Cavaliers QB Philip Sims was forced out due to academic reasons.
Now, according to "The Virginian Pilot" Sims is close to choosing a new school.
Sims sat down with Ed Miller and says he's narrowed his choices down to three or four schools and hopes to make his decision by the end of this week.
The former four-star recruit out of Oscar Smith High School in Virginia spent two seasons and a spring at Alabama.
Sims transferred after losing the starting QB job to AJ McCarron in 2011.
In his one season with the Cavs he threw for 1,263 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions.
