Shull, Farris to play at SRJC; Petaluma's Sims undecided

Posted by Staff Writer Eric Branch:
College football’s National Signing Day is Wednesday, but some of the Empire’s top players are still deciding about their futures or will not be attending four-year schools as freshmen.
Perhaps the most prominent player still weighing his options is Petaluma fullback/linebacker Ricky Sims, the Sonoma County League’s co-MVP. Sims has visisted Humboldt State and is expected to visit Cal Lutheran later this month. He has also talked to coaches at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Sacramento State about walking-on at those schools.
The 5-foot-10, 215-pound Sims rushed for 1,302 yards and 23 touchdowns to help lead the Trojans to the SCL title and a 10-0 regular-season record.
* Montgomery safety/linebacker Austin Shull, the North Bay League’s Defensive MVP, will attend Santa Rosa Junior College.
The 6-foot, 195-pound Shull had a team-high 138 tackles and added six interceptions and three sacks to help lead the Vikings to a 12-2 record and a berth in the North Coast Section Division II title game. Shull also tied a state record by returning three punts for touchdowns in a 51-12 win over Elsie Allen.
* Maria Carrillo offensive lineman Daniel Farris, the NBL’s co-Lineman of the Year, will attend SRJC.
The 6-4, 280-pound Farris was an honorable-mention all-NBL pick as a junior. He shared Lineman of the Year honors with Montgomery’s Jay Luchetti, who has committed to UC Davis.
SRJC coach Keith Simons said Santa Rosa linebacker Jaden Rosselli and Piner offensive lineman Herman Serrano will also play for the Bear Cubs.
Rosselli was a two-time all-NBL pick. He was a second-team pick as a senior despite battling an ankle injury and turf toe during the season. Serrano was a first-team all-NBL selection as a senior.
* Casa Grande wide receiver/linebacker Connor Waggoner, a first-team all-SCL pick on offense and defense, has visited Humboldt State and is expected to visit Cal Lutheran, Willamette and, possibly, Lewis & Clark later this month.
Waggoner had 85 tackles and a team-high seven sacks. He added 42 catches for 679 yards and five touchdowns.
