"I committed to Coach Bray today. He was very happy that he's getting another Husky player out there. It feels great being a Sun Devil. I can't wait to get there."
The 6-2 245 Lee Adams had 93 tackles, five sacks and two interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) for the 10-3 Huskies. Even though he was named his league's defensive player of the year, he didn't receive that much recruiting attention early in the season.
"I sent them my highlight film to Arizona State a couple of months ago," recalled Adams. "They really weren't recruiting me before that, but they started calling me after they got my tape. Last night Coach Bray offered me a scholarship, but he told me that there was a possibility that I was going to greyshirt and only enroll there in the spring of 2011.
"So I thought about and talked it over my parents, to make sure I was OK with the greyshirt. They thought it was a great idea if I went there. It was always a dream of mine going there and I thought I would end up going to another school that had offered me. But once I got that offer from ASU I knew I was going there."
"Recruiting wise was a little slow for him," said Centennial coach Matt Logan. "As a junior he played behind Will Sutton, and I think a lot of schools, and us too as coaches didn't know how good he could be. He surprised us with his play.
"He had a phenomenal season and was our team MVP. He‘s a great pass rusher. He's more of a leaner and taller guy compared to Will, and he was a great lineman for us."
