Thursday night in Keller, Texas Jamal Adams wanted to "be a ballhawk." After an impressive 34-7 Hebron win over Keller Fossil Ridge it is safe for Adams to say mission accomplished.
On the night Adams blocked a field goal, recorded an interception, had couple of near interceptions, and also made plays on offense and in the return game. There was one play Fossil Ridge was able to fool him, but even then he was able to chase down the play to make a touchdown saving tackle.
"They ran a bubble and I was being too aggressive on that bubble so they got me on the double pass," Adams said. "I just wanted to make up for it and go get him so that's what I did."
His size, athleticism, playmaking ability, and his overall drive for excellence quickly attracted the attention of college coaches. This spring and summer that attention has turned into college offers.
"I have most of the Big 12 and two SEC - Texas A&M and Kentucky," Adams said. "Right now I'm just trying to see where it goes."
When it comes to naming a favorite, Adams says he is not ready to go that far just yet.
"I don't really have any favorites, but I do have schools that are showing me the most love, and that's probably Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and Alabama," Adams said.
He is currently focused on the Lewisville Hebron's 2012 season, but he does have a few unofficial visits on his schedule.
"I know I'm going to a couple of games. I'm probably going to stop by the Texas/West Virginia game and then I'm going to go to the Oklahoma Sooners Clash," Adams said. "I call it the clash because it's a Big 12 clash. The Red River Rivalry I call it the clash."
