Hebron - Timberview Preview

This Texas matchup features three of the nation's best defensive backs, and should be a fun one as Lewisville Hebron five-star safety Jamal Adams takes on good friends and Mansfield Timberview teammates Brandon Simmons and Ed Paris in a 7:00 p.m. kickoff Thursday at Mansfield's Vernon Newsom Stadium.

Adams, the No. 2 safety in the country, had a solid game on defense in Hebron's 37-7 win at Abilene last week. He helped the defense hold the Eagles to 167 yards of offense.

But it was his offensive playmaking abilities that have opponents on high alert, scoring on a 71-yard run and a 48-yard pass from Carson Proffitt. He had 2 rushes for 119 yards (59.5 average). Fellow senior Treyvon Hughes rushed 12 times for 129 yards and touchdowns of 30 and 71 yards.

Adams will have his hands full going against Simmons, a Stanford commitment, and Paris, an LSU verbal pledge. Paris had a 67-yard interception return for a touchdown in their 49-14 win over cross-town rival Mansfield Summit last week.

Timberview, like Hebron, allowed just 167 yards of total offense.

Adams, with every major BCS program in lap, has narrowed his search to Texas, Texas A&M, Florida, Ole Miss and Ohio State.

After tripping to Florida, Ole Miss, Texas A&M and Texas this summer, he will return to all four, plus Ohio State for official visits.

Schedule:

Sept. 14 - Texas A&M (hosts Alabama)

Sept. 21 - Florida (hosts Tennessee)

Oct. 19 - Ole Miss (hosts LSU)

Oct. 26 - Ohio State (hosts Penn State)

Nov. 16 - Texas (hosts Oklahoma State)

He would like to have a decision made soon after the visits.
