Akron (Ohio) Buchtel three-star cornerback Johnny Adams will do whatever it takes to help his team win. Already established as one of the top defenders in the Midwest, Adams now plans on taking over on the offensive side of the ball.
"I'm at quarterback now, too," Adams said.
"Last year I got to catch some passes at receiver, but now I'm going to be the guy delivering the ball. I like that role. It allows me to be an even bigger leader out there. I'm a thrower for sure. I'm going to sit in the pocket and pick you apart."

Could a move to quarterback be down the line for the 5-foot-11, 157-pounder?
"Oh, no," he said. "I'm not some 6-foot-6 pro-style guy. Maybe I can come in and do some trick plays or something in college, but I want to be that lockdown cornerback in college."
Speaking of college, Adams isn't really worried about that at this point. He knows his offer list is impressive with teams like Illinois, Indiana, Michigan State, Purdue, Syracuse, West Virginia and others, but he's also not in a major rush to even think about official visit.
"I'm really, really wide open," Adams said. "I'm going to go to some games and take some unofficial visits, but I can't even begin to tell you where I'm going."
Adams said he's so wide open that he can't even begin to name a school or two that he will take official visit to.
"I'm going to have to study more on that when the coaches can call again," he said. "But I don't know about any leaders or any trips. I just need to let things play out."
Adams is excited about the start of his senior season. Things kickoff on this week when Buchtel opens up against Walsh Jesuit.
"I know they have a big defensive line coming back," he said. "But we have a good offensive line, and we're going to put up some points. We've looked really good in practices."
