Herschel Sims Transfers To Lamar University

Oklahoma State running back Herschel Sims was booted from the Cowboys football team back in May for felony forgery. Sims has seemingly found a place to play football next season, since it won't be with Okie State, at Lamar University. Sims announced his transfer destination on his personal Facebook page, changing his location to Beaumont, Texas and adding Lamar to his timeline.

As a freshman with Oklahoma State, Sims rushed the football just 31 times for 242 yards. Sims did have two one-hundred yard rushing games and two touchdowns, despite being the third running back on the depth chart.

Since Lamar University is a Football Championship Subdivision, Sims will not have to sit out a year and can play right away in 2012. There was some belief Sims could sit out a season and transfer to Baylor, but instead opted to play right away.

Herschel Sims Charged With Felony Forgery After Dismissal By Oklahoma State

As first reported by SB Nation's Oklahoma State site Cowboys Ride For Free, OSU dismissed second-year running back Herschel Sims last week. Tuesday, he was charged with two counts of felony forgery for his use of a bank account withdrawal slip to take $700 from teammate Jeremiah Tshimanga.

More details from the police report, via the Tulsa World:

Tshimanga told police that when he noticed money was missing from his account, he contacted the bank and through the bank's investigation was able to identify the suspect. Tshimanga said he confronted the suspect and asked for the money back, and the suspect confessed but has failed to repay him, the report states.

As a freshman, Sims produced 242 rushing yards, putting him third on the team behind a pair of sophomores and in line for a very big role in the future. He was rated a four-star recruit by Rivals and ranked as the second best all-purpose back in the country.
