Will Adams Flips To Auburn

Sandy Creek's Will Adams made his decision on Wednesday and has chosen the Auburn Tigers.

Tyrone, Ga.—A three-star prospect and the number 88 offensive tackle in the country according to Scout.com, Sandy Creek high standout Will Adams had been committed to Georgia Tech for several months, but on Wednesday completed a late switch as he signed with Gene Chizik and the Auburn Tigers.

Following a long commitment to the Yellow Jackets, Adams decided to visit Auburn last weekend after he learned that Georgia Tech's offensive line coach Todd Spencer is not expected back on the staff. That opened the door for the Tigers and helping the cause was longtime Auburn commitment Jaquay Williams. He visited with Adams and that only strengthened Auburn's chances with the talented offensive lineman.

National Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons has seen Adams play as much as anyone in the industry and feels like Auburn is getting a player that has the chance to really take some huge strides forward in the coming years on the offensive line.

"He has really developed physically in the last year or year and a half," Simmons said. "I remember seeing him in his junior year and he was probably around 240 at that time playing offensive tackle. Now he's up there in the 285 range. He has the NFL offensive tackle frame. I think Auburn is a very good fit for him.

"I think he can go farther playing in a system like that than he could have in the triple option offense at Georgia Tech and that's not a knock at Georgia Tech or Paul Johnson. I really like his future. He's a Top 30 kid for me in Georgia on Scout.com and a very high three-star for us. I like his length. I like his toughness. He comes from a great high school program at Sandy Creek. Once he gets in the weight room and gets stronger I think he'll make a big impact at Auburn."
