2014 QB Prospect Visits Auburn

Vigor quarterback Devin Adams talks about his visit to Auburn.

Mobile, Ala.—At 6-3, 220, Vigor quarterback Devin Adams is an imposing figure on the football field. Just a sophomore in 2011 when he led the Wolves to the Class 5A title game, Adams is now beginning to get attention from several powerhouse teams in the South including the Auburn Tigers.

On Wednesday he made a visit to Auburn along with his mother to check out the Auburn program and talk with Coach Gene Chizik and his staff. Making his first trip to the Plains, Adams said it went very well and he's planning on being back in town.

"I love the tradition and most of all the hospitality that the Auburn people showed me," Adams said. "They treat you like you're one of their own. Like my mom said, she wouldn't mind leaving me with them. I like it and she likes it. We'll be taking more trips to Auburn."

Being recruited for Auburn by linebacker coach Tommy Thigpen as well as offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler, Adams said one of the highlights of the day was spending the time talking with the coaches.

"I talked to my area recruiting coach (Thigpen) and he said he was coming down to talk to us," Adams said. He told me he loves the area and the talent that comes out of there. I also met with Coach Chizik and Coach Lefty (Loeffler).

"It looks like he knows a lot about the game," he added of Loeffler. "I'm impressed with him and the quarterbacks he said he taught like Tom Brady and Tim Tebow. That just inspires me to want to work with him."

Already hearing from Georgia, Florida State and Alabama but still waiting on his first offer, Adams is headed to Athens later this week to check out the Bulldogs. Having already been to see both the Seminoles and Crimson Tide, Adams said right now his Auburn trip is at the top of the list.

"Out of those schools I liked Auburn the most," Adams said. "They showed me the most hospitality. It just went good. There was a lot of love shown. It was my first time seeing any of them and they act like they had known me all my life. I like the tradition and the history of the school."

Playing in all 15 games and taking over as the starter during the season, Adams completed 80-172 passes for 1,091 yards and nine touchdowns with only three interceptions. In the 5A title game loss to Hartselle he was 11-24 for 135 yards and added 19 yards rushing.

With a year under his belt and preparing for his junior season, Adams said that he's a physical player and brings that to the table for the Wolves.

"I have unbelievable arm strength," Adams said. "I can buy more time in the pocket with my size by breaking tackles and extending plays."

Planning to camp at Auburn on June 6 for a camp and also scheduled to camp at LSU, Adams said this weekend he'll be at the Elite 11 qualifying competition to try to earn a spot in next year's group.
