HOUSTON, Texas (CBS Sports) — Houston tailback transfer Charles Sims might be forced to look further afield to play out his final year of eligibility after transfer restrictions placed by the Cougars.

The Cougars’ three-time leading rusher has reportedly been told by the school that he cannot transfer “to any school in AAC, any school on Cougars’ 2013 schedule or any team in state.”

Sims had been “widely speculated” to be favoring a transfer to Texas Tech but will now consider either Cal or West Virginia — schools with coaches (Sonny Dykes and Dana Holgorsen, respectively) that run offenses similar to Houston’s Air Raid-inspired attack.
