Returning Dominators: No. 8 Steven Sims Jr.

In this series, I’m breaking down the top-10 returning college wide receivers from 2016 by dominator rating (DR), using our FBS WR database. If you’re unfamiliar with dominator rating, it’s a receiver’s combined market share for yardage and TDs. While it’s only one element in receiver evaluation – and requires age and experience adjustments to tell the full story – it provides an excellent snapshot of a player’s role within his offense.  Consider this an early look at potential rookies next year. Some of the names may surprise you. Coming in at number eight, Steven Sims Jr.


Sims Jr. is a five-foot-ten, 176-pound junior from Travis High School in Richmond, Texas. He was rated a three-star prospect by 247 sports and ESPN. Sims completed his high school career with 137 receptions for 2,040 yards and 29 touchdowns. A first team all-district selection his senior year, Sims was also a finalist for Houston Touchdown Club Offensive Player of the Year. Kansas, McNeese State, Prarie View A&M, Southeastern Louisiana, Southern, and Stephen F. Austin all offered scholarships. Sims took official visits to Colorado and McNeese State before signing with Kansas.
