Alabama makes a move for Adams

Alabama hosted dozens of top prospects on Saturday for its second big junior day of the 2015 cycle, and not many in attendance were ranked higher than four-star Fletcher Adams. The Mississippi product broke down his time on campus and details why the Crimson Tide is climbing up his list of top schools.

Fletcher Adams is pretty familiar with Nick Saban, Tuscaloosa and the atmosphere at Alabama, but it doesn't mean that a weekend visit didn't help the Crimson Tide's chances in landing the four-star defensive tackle out of Brandon (Miss.) High.

"It was good!" he said of the trip on Saturday. "They are definitely in my top three right now.

"I like their defensive schemes, and they seem very interested in me. And 'Bama is only two hours from home, so it's almost like being at home."

As one would expect, it's an all-SEC battle for one of America's top junior defensive linemen, though a decision is not expected anytime soon.

"My top five are 'Bama, Ole Miss, MSU (Mississippi State), Georgia and Florida," Adams said. "I'll probably be waiting it out at least until next fall.

"That's how I feel right now, which could change."

As for the time with fellow elite prospects for the junior day, the coaches made another big impression on the 6-foot-3, 260 pounder.

"Kirby Smart said he's been hearing good things about me," Adams said. "And they pretty much just expressed that they wanted me.

"They like my pass-rushing skills and run stop ability. And I think in the 3-4 they play, I can play inside or outside because of my versatility on the line."

Already taking time to see Oxford and Starkville of late, there aren't imminent junior day plans for the nation's No. 12 defensive tackle. Instead, he'll hit a few camps to try and measure up with some of the nation's top athletes.

"And I got the Under Armour camp March 15th in Mississippi, and then the Nike camp in Birmingham March 30th," he said. "Oh yea. I'm ready to work."

Adams holds scholarship offers from every program on his current list.
