I am fully aware that there is already a Transfer Thread, but I did not want to override that thread with opinions versus facts.
I would like to know which guys do you think need to transfer before it is too late and which non-conference program do you feel would best suit them.
My #1 guy is Phillip Sims RS Fr. QB Alabama
My personal views on Sims, is that he is wasting his time in Tuscaloosa, only to have 1 full season under his belt as a starter if AJ McCarron stays until his senior year.
Coming out of the HS ranks, Sims was rated as the #1 pro-style QB in the country, depending on which source you prefer. Throughout the recruiting process, Nick Saban locked up Phillip, with a sales pitch of an "opportunity to play". This year Phillip got his "opportunity" through Spring ball and the season opener, which is where he lost the job by throwing 7/14 73yds with 2 interceptions.
So what, Sims now has a Nat'l title under his belt as a backup! I would like to know how does he think, he will become a NFL prospect in 1 full season of action. The type of caliber player he is, he will command the playing time he is seeking elsewhere.
Next destination... UVA once he says "Coach Saban! Grant me my release"
