Four-star safety Spencer Adams out of Matthews (N.C.) Butler has just finished up his track season. The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder discussed what's next for him this upcoming summer.
"We had the high school national championship in track over the weekend and I ranked second in the nation in the 110 hurdles and fourth in the 400 hurdles. Overall I was pretty happy with the performance and felt like I did pretty well."
Track season isn't done for Adams as he plans to participate in AAU track this summer.

With that in mind, the Rivals250 prospect isn't looking at camps much.
"I probably won't do them," he said. "Most of the schools recruiting me have said it doesn't matter, so instead I'm just going to focus on Butler football and do seven-on-seven tournaments."
While recruiting is taking a backseat, Adams did discuss his favorites a bit in-depth.
"I did have a top five, but now it's a top seven since Miami and Florida offered," he said. "Clemson, North Carolina, NC State, Michigan and Virginia Tech are the other schools in my list."
Florida: "They are national champions and are undefeated in the Swamp."
Miami: "I get that homey feeling with them. I like the way they are going and I think they'll get back that spirit of winning."
Clemson: "They are an all-around good athletic school and they have a good football team as well. I like the tradition there too."
Virginia Tech: "The thing with them is the crowd noise and it's a football school. Everything about the college is football oriented."
North Carolina: "I've met the coaches and players at North Carolina and they are energetic about changing the program. All of the coaches on staff could be head coaches elsewhere and I see them doing big things in the future."
NC State: "The same thing as UNC, they have an all-star coaching staff and I like the way they run their program."
Michigan: "Again another national contending powerhouse that is always going to championships."
With no visits planned this summer, Adams will be waiting awhile for a decision.
"Track is expensive and it's a lot of money to go to those camps," he said. "I'm going to try to go to as many of those schools for official visits as possible. I'm going to definitely wait on a decision until after my season is done."
In other news, the No. 11 safety in the country recently found out he was invited to an all-star game in January.
"I got a call and ESPN is putting together an all-star game in Orlando that I'm invited to. That's pretty exciting too."
