Georgia Tech’s Myles Sims received an immediate eligibility waiver and suited for the Yellow Jackets in 2019 after transferring from Michigan.
Georgia Tech’s Myles Sims transferred into the program last offseason from Michigan, giving the Yellow Jackets a huge boost to their secondary. The former four-star prospect out of Atlanta, transferred to Michigan after just one season in Ann Arbor.
After transferring, Sims was able to receive an immediate eligibility waiver, giving him the opportunity to play for the Jackets in 2019. Sims appeared in eight games for the Yellow Jackets during the season and put in a quality effort during his time on the field.
Overall, Sims recorded 16 tackles this season including 15 tackles. Through the air, he didn’t record any interceptions but did record three psas deflections.
Perhaps the best news for Sims is that he finished the 2019 season with his best game of the season. Against the Georgia Bulldogs, Sims recorded five tackles. He also had a strong game against the Virginia Cavaliers where he recorded four tackles including one assisted tackle.
Sims probably didn’t have the impact that some fans were hoping for in 2019. That being said, in 2020, Sims impact should be a bit bigger. With a full offseason under his belt in the program and just another year in the system, Sims impact potential should grow quite a bit.
Sims will be a great piece for the Jackets to have in their secondary whether he develops into the cornerback fans hope he can be or is just a quality depth piece. Either way, he’s certainly has the potential to be a game-changer in the secondary at any moment.
