Cary, N.C. star running back Josh Adams has had a pretty busy summer as he is taking classes to stay on track to graduate next year.
"It's going pretty well, I've got three more days left until it's over," he said. "I'm getting Algebra II out of the way to keep me on track."
Very little has happened on the recruiting front for the 6-foot-0, 170-pounder.
"I haven't called any coaches, but I did receive an e-mail from coach Mallory at LSU. Besides that I'm receiving the same letters from the same schools."
Has the Rivals250 prospect begun to think about official visits?
"I'm not thinking too much ahead," he said. "I wouldn't mind going to schools that I haven't visited already for my visits. Most likely I'll take all five, although I'm looking to wait until after my senior season is over before I take any. The schools I'd potentially visit would be Tennessee, Maryland and LSU."
As for a top five, Adams is far from announcing his favorites.
"I'm still wide open among my offers," he said. "Of course, I'm looking for academics and the type of football program they have. I also want to see how long the coaching staff has been there and my opportunity for playing time. I'm planning to wait until the end, probably near or close to Signing Day."
What does the No. 3 player in North Carolina like about LSU?
"They've been sending me a lot of personal letters and I've got a teacher who's very familiar with that area," he said. "I know it's a little bit crazier down there and they won the national championship two years ago. It's a big stadium there and it gets crazy, but they interest me."
Next season Adams is looking to enjoy himself during his final year at Cary.
"I'm just looking to stay healthy and have a fun time. I'm looking to bond with the guys because I haven't been able to play with most of them since I've playing varsity the whole time. Hopefully we can come out conference champs and stick together as a team," he said. "For myself, I just want to get my weight up and be in the best shape I can be next year. I'm also looking for as much advice from peers, players and coaches to be the best I can be."
The four-star prospect ran for 2,884 yards and 26 touchdowns as he was named all-state as a junior.
