Top Defensive Tackle Likes Auburn Trip

Scout's number one defensive tackle talks about his visit to Auburn.

Vienna, Ga.—Rated the nation's number one defensive tackle by Scout.com, Dooly County standout Montravius Adams was in Auburn over the weekend for his second look at the Auburn Tigers. With a connection to the coaching staff as his coach Shelton Felton played for Auburn DL Coach Mike Pelton at Troy, Adams said he's getting more and more comfortable with the Tigers.

One of the things that Adams was able to do on his visit was spend more time with Coach Gene Chizik and get a feel for the head coach. After sitting down with him Adams said he likes what Chizik has to say about his future should he choose the Tigers.

"It went good," Adams said. "I liked everything about it. I got more time to talk to Coach Chizik. He showed me how he wants to use me in their defense. Kind of like how Nick Fairley played, they want to get me one-on-one with the weakest guard and take it from there. That's exciting because he's kind of like one of my favorite players."

With offers from all over the country, Adams will have his choice of just about any program so he's taking his time to make sure wherever he winds up is the right fit for him. That's something he said he's finding out about Auburn on each successive trip.

"I am starting to feel more comfortable," Adams said. "The coaches are real cool. I just feel good there."

Being able to watch Auburn practice was also big for Adams. Seeing the need on the defensive line in terms of depth, he said it gave him an idea that he could make an impact right away with the Tigers.

"I could see myself playing," Adams said. "I wanted to get out there but I'm still in high school. They need a little help and I know I could come in and help them."

With his only recent visit a trip to see Georgia, Adams is not rushing into things with his recruiting. Not planning to make a decision until late in the process, possibly at the Under Armour Game, he said right now he doesn't have a top group but when he cuts down there's a good chance Auburn will be in that group.

"I don't have any favorites," Adams said. "I'm still just looking at everybody. Auburn is just like everybody else. I'm trying to look at everybody and see. I think they (Auburn) have a good chance when I cut everything down."
