Former Tide QB Phillips Sims Out at Virginia

From Sports Illustrated:

"Virginia quarterback Phillip Sims is no longer on the football team, according to coach Mike London in a WDBJ7.com report. He will remain enrolled at the university for summer classes. He will not be enrolled in the fall.

Sims, the nation’s former top-rated quarterback recruit who transferred to Virginia from Alabama last summer, started four games and played in all 12 games for the Cavaliers in 2012. The Chesapeake native completed 132 of 231 passes for 1,426 yards and nine touchdowns.

London questioned Sims’ commitment to the UVA program and his education..."

The Virginia SBN site reports "academic reasons". Looking at Coach London uncomplimentary quotes, I am guessing Sims was not taking his education very seriously.

As you may recall, Sims left Alabama after losing the starting job to AJ McCarron in 2011. Somehow, Sims was granted immediate eligibility at UVa (4-8, 2-6). Sims split time last season with Michael Rocco who transferred to the University of Richmond in January.

Sims had fallen to third on the depth chart behind a sophomore and a redshirt freshmen.

Unless he goes down in division, Sims will most likely have to sit out a season.
