Back on Aug. 22, three-star cornerback Johnny Adams said he was in no rush to make a decision. The nation's No. 45 cornerback said he couldn't even name a favorite and it was hard pressed to get him to even name schools that had offered him a scholarship.
What a change a few weeks can make.
Adams, who is measured in at the Rivals.com Junior Day at Akron at 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds, said he decided to commit to Michigan State earlier today, picking the Spartans over offers from Illinois, Indiana, Purdue, Syracuse, West Virginia and others.

"I'm a Spartan," Adams from Akron (Ohio) Buchtel said.
"I committed this morning. I like the Michigan State atmosphere, the coaching staff, I like the players there because I know some of them and I just felt like it would be a great fit for me.
"I called coach Mark Dantonio. He was very excited."
So why the sudden change of heart?
"You know I have my ways, my secrets," Adams said.
"I knew I was going to commit to Michigan State for a while. They were always at the top of my list. I'm pretty sure of my decision. I don't have any other plans of taking visits. I'm not sure when I'll take my visit to Michigan State, but I will for sure."
Adams is a star on both sides of the football and an excellent get for MSU.
He's playing quarterback this season and as a junior he had 14 touchdowns receiving and six interceptions on defense. On defense, he's a lockdown cover corner that should be able to make the adjustment to the next level rather quickly once he adds weight and strength.
Michigan State assistant Pat Narduzzi recruited Adams. He is also ranked as the No. 30 player in Ohio and a 5.6 on the Rivals Rating Scale.
