Houston senior running back Charles Sims has decided to leave the school, leaving the Cougars without their leading rusher.
"It is with regret and deep humbling, that I am ending my playing career at the University of Houston," Sims said in a statement. "I have a lot of great memories that I will carry with me forever. I want to thank the University of Houston for allowing the opportunity to be a part of its football program.
"I don't know what my next step will be. I have one more year of eligibility, therefore I may look to play one more year of college football or I may enter the NFL Supplemental Draft later this year."
Sims said he'll decide soon on his next step. He recently graduated from Houston with a health degree, and wouldn't have to sit out a year if he decides to transfer.
Despite missing three games last season, Sims led the team with 851 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. He also caught 37 passes for 373 yards and another three touchdowns. He totaled 4,077 total yards and 37 total touchdowns in his career.
