Pensacola (Fla.) Catholic defensive end Luke Adams had a recent conversation with an assistant coach at South Florida, and he came away from that conversation feeling that the Bulls were extending him an offer.
"I talked with Coach (Kevin) Patrick," Adams said. "We talked and he just asked me how things were going. He said that they really want me. He said I could be something special for them. He also said that they were going to come to one of my games to watch. He said they were going to extend me the offer and that they want to get me down there for an official visit."
According to Adams, Patrick plans to watch when Pensacola (Fla.) Catholic takes on Gulf Breeze (Fla.) during the second weekend in September.
The 6-foot-4, 250-pound defensive end is planning to hit the road and visit South Florida for a game or two. He most recently made his way to the Tampa-based campus during the summer when he took an unofficial visit.
"I am planning to take an unofficial towards the beginning of the season and an official visit towards the end of the season," Adams said.
At this time, Adams hasn't set up specific dates for his trip to Tampa. In addition to visit South Florida, he said he also hopes to take visits to Central Florida and Ole Miss.
The three-star defensive lineman currently has Central Florida and South Florida out front for his services. He says the impending offer from South Florida will simply make his final decision an extremely difficult one between the Sunshine State rivals.
"It just means making the decision will be that much harder," Adams said. "It is going to be a tough decision between the two."
Adams said his final decision won't likely come until at least the end of his season.
