Now Adams is turning his attention towards his summer plans.
The 6-foot-3, 260-pound defender holds offers from several top programs, and has received significant interest from the likes of Notre Dame, Arkansas, and Florida State. With summer about to kick into high gear, so is Adams.
"I'll be going to Alabama on the 14th and I'm supposed to be going to visit Florida sometime in June too," Adams said. "So I have a pretty good schedule going into June. "
Alabama and Florida are joined by Auburn, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Louisville, and Missouri as his offers under the most consideration. He is not ready to name a top five, but he does admit Ole Miss stands out a little bit at this point.
"Yeah, but you know everything is really about the same, but Ole Miss has been coming at me pretty hard," Adams said. "They are kind of standing out a little bit too."
What has Ole Miss done to catch his attention?
"Mainly just hearing from the coaches each and every day," Adams said. "I talk to coach Nix, my recruiting coach, and coach Kiffin, the d-line coach, a lot. They've been coming at me hard so they really show a lot of interest because they really want me."
Adams is in no hurry to rush to a decision, but if all works out he is hoping to make a preseason commitment.
"Yeah, probably sometime in the late summer, sometime around August, and try to get it done before my senior season," Adams said. "But it could change, but probably sometime around that time."
The standout defender also knows what he is looking for in a future college program.
"Really I want to see if that school fits good with me," Adams said. "You can't just go to a school. For me I want to go to a school that will teach me a lot of things and not only just football but all kinds of stuff. I'm going to go over it with my family and talk it over and make the best decision I can. You have to have a good relationship with your recruiting coach too."
