Adams: "Florida was great"

Adams: "Florida was great"

Florida was the first school to get five-star defensive tackle Montravius Adams on their campus for an official visit and he talks about that, his interest in them, and more here.

"I had a very good visit down there. Florida was great and I liked it like I thought I would," Montravius Adams told Scout.

"It was my third time visiting them, so I had already seen most of the stuff, but they still showed me a lot. They showed me the weight room, all of the facilities, how they have academic support there, and things like that.

"I liked it all and I had a very good visit."

Adams spent most of his time with UF defensive line coach Bryant Young. Coach Young is Adams' primary recruiter and the two get along very good.

"We have a great relationship and I like him a lot. I relate to him very well and he is a guy that talks a lot about recruiting, but he also talks to me like a friend. We have a good connection."

Young played defensive line in college and in the NFL and that is very appealing to the 6-foot-3, 300 pound defensive lineman out of Vienna, Ga.

"Coach Young has done a lot of the things I want to do and he has accomplished a lot of the things I want to accomplish in football, so I really like him. He has played in the NFL and that is my goal, so I know he knows what he is talking about as a coach. He is a great guy too."

Young's boss is Will Muschamp, the head coach at Florida and Adams speaks highly of him as well.

"I got to spend some time with Coach Muschamp and we had a good talk. He likes me a lot and he told me that he'd give me the opportunity to play early if I come to Florida.

"I really like his attitude and his intensity too as a coach. He said all the right things to me and he has shown me what he would be like as a coach."

The Gators were the first school to host this five-star for an official visit. Clemson will have him on their campus this weekend, then Alabama, and then Georgia to close out the month of January.

Gainesville, Fla. is a place he has been a few times now and the Gators have his attention.

"I have high interest in them right now," the No. 3 defensive tackle in the country said. "They are high on my list and I really like them. I really like all the things Florida has to offer as a school and as a football program."

Adams is the No. 11 overall prospect in the country on Scout and he plans to announce his decision on Signing Day. He is not sure yet if he will take a fifth official visit and if he does, who will get it.
