Updated scouting report on Top247 4-star defensive lineman Xadavien Sims

Durant (Oklahoma) Four-star high school quarterback Xadavien Sims is one of the top candidates in the state of Oklahoma for the 2024 recruiting cycle. At 6’3″ and 275 pounds, Sims combines an encouraging physique with two-way experience and reps in the shot put/disc to provide a promising profile on the field and in the sport.

Sims, who spent his first two years of high school in nearby Denison, Texas, has a history of 41-foot shot put and 133-foot discus. Expect those numbers to continue rising if he competes again in two events this spring track and field season.

Sims received over 20 offers across the country. Michigan State leads the 247Sports Crystal Ball. Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, and USC also offered the talented quarterback, who is expected to visit the West Coast this weekend.

Our Sims Player Comparison: Thomas Booker, a former Stanford linebacker and fifth-round pick by Houston in the 2022 NFL Draft. In addition to physical resemblance, Booker also received two-sided snaps in high school and shot put.


A real agile on the ground trucker with a strong physique. Adequate height tested in the 6-3 range, same sufficient frame length with room for more weight. Very young for his class. Probably a universal perspective given the physical traits.

Flashes the impact force at the point of attack. Able to switch off to play with the ball. Has some chasing juice when shorted to a bead.

The power of the game is clear. A bull rusher who can roll a pocket from the inside, but also plays with edge flicks and shows similar brute strength on the outside.

Holds valuable double-sided snaps with reps in the tight end. Flashes affect ability to block and shoot from a stance, perhaps more consistently offensively. Shot put and discus throw experience with respectable early career records from freshmen and sophomores.

More technical details are needed. This includes hand violence, extension and successive disengagement, as well as expanding his range of motion as a pass rusher. Updated validated measurable, testing and roll data will also help shed more light on long-term upside potential.

However, designed as a large linebacker with possible staff versatility. Can arrive with the size and strength to play early if needed. One of the best prospects in Oklahoma State’s class of 2024. The set of characteristics and data points suggests the possibility of becoming an influential college player and an NFL Draft candidate.
