Arkansas WR talks NIKE, recruiting

The Fort Worth NIKE Camp allowed Little Rock (Ark.) Central Arkansas Christian wide receiver Joe Adams to showcase his significant skill. The speedy, quick pass catcher took MVP honors at a loaded receiver position and showed why most of the programs that actively recruit the Natural State are vying for his services.
"At my school we do some of the same skills and drills stuff," Adams said. "So I kind of knew what to expect. I did well in the one-on-ones and used my speed."
Adams has been clocked as fast as 4.49 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
On the recruiting front, there are plenty of programs that currently are in the mix for Adams' services.
"I've got offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Georgia, Minnesota, Arkansas, Tulsa, Air Force and Kansas," Adams said. "Right now, there are five that stand out, Georgia, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Minnesota and Arkansas."
One of Texas Tech's assistant coaches was in Little Rock last week to check up on Adams and two more schools are expected this coming week.
"Michigan and Tennessee said they are going to come by and see me," he said.
There are four major programs that Adams wouldn't mind hearing from as his stock rises.
"USC, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Florida," he said. "Florida sends me letters."
This summer, Adams will camp at Georgia and Arkansas and possibly Georgia Tech.
While making his decision, Adams will focus on two major aspects of a program, one on the field and one off.
"I'm going to be looking at academics and a balanced offense," he said. "I want to play in an offense that is going to run and throw the ball, not just run all the time.
Adams wants to major in Education and hopes to someday coach football.
