Colleyville (Texas) Covenant Christian cornerback Adam Maxie has been around the game of football his entire life. His father, Brett Maxie, is the secondary coach for the Dallas Cowboys and has also worked for the Dolphins, Falcons, 49ers and Panthers.
The younger Maxie is looking to make his own name, though. The 6-foot-1, 172-pound senior has done a good job of that so far. He has yet to pick up his first offer but is firmly on the radars of several programs.
"The ones I've been hearing from the most are Alabama, LSU, Georgia Tech, UConn, North Texas and SFA," Maxie said.

An injury suffered during his junior season is what has kept Maxie from grabbing his first offer.
"I had surgery at the end of January so I wasn't able to go to any camps this summer," he said. "I had surgery on my hip. I had a torn labrum in my right hip. Everything's fine now, though."
Maxie was able to make it to a few campuses for unofficial visits, though.
"I visited Alabama, LSU, Georgia Tech and SFA," he said. "I had a chance to talk to all of the coaches. I talked to Nick Saban (at Alabama) and the LSU coaches as well as SFA and Georgia Tech."
Offers could be coming soon for the speedy defender.
"They all seemed to like me," Maxie said. "They just liked my size a lot. They said they knew I was coming off an injury and they were just waiting for me to recover.
"They want to see the first few games. They said after the first three games or so I should know about a potential offer. They like my size and they need a tall corner and that's what they're looking for."
Maxie says an SEC program has piqued his interest.
"I like Alabama a lot," he said. "They send me a lot of mail and coach Saban has talked to my dad about me getting offered. That's my first choice but I'm still looking everywhere."
Maxie was an all-state selection as a junior after tallying 117 tackles, 18 pass breakups and three interceptions. He also added 217 yards and two scores rushing and returned two kickoffs for touchdowns.
