DT Montravius Adams Updates Recruiting

Five-star defensive tackle Montravius Adams (6-4, 300) from Dooly County High School talks to Inside the Auburn Tigers about what is happening on the recruiting front.

Vienna, Ga. –-Montravius Adams had scheduled a recruiting visit to East Lansing, Mich., last weekend for the Notre Dame vs. Michigan State game, but had to change his plans late in the week.

"It got canceled because my Momma couldn't go," Adams told Inside the Auburn Tigers. He added that he has other official visits lined up. "I know right I've planned three – LSU, Oregon and Southern Cal."

Adams didn't know which dates he was going to the schools, but said that the plan is for his mother to accompany him on all of his officials.

He is also hoping to go to the Maryland at Clemson game and the Iron Bowl in Tuscaloosa with Auburn taking on Alabama.

"She's just been to Auburn (on an unofficial)," Adams noted. "She liked it. She liked the coaches, she thinks I can play there, she likes the family base, and it's a place she'd like to go visit some more and see if it's a possibility that she still likes it.

"I liked it there too," he added.

Adams is being recruited to Auburn by defensive line coach Mike Pelton.

"We're going to be close regardless," the 6-4, 300-pound defensive tackle said. "My coach, Coach (Shelton) Felton, the defensive coordinator here (at Dooly County), was coached by Coach Pelton when he was at Troy."

Adams was in the Georgia Dome for the opening weekend of the college football season as Clemson beat Auburn 26-19. He said that both schools are in the mix.

Auburn is 1-2 with an overtime victory against Louisiana-Monroe, but the Tigers' struggles this year won't play a part of Adams' decision, he said. "If a team is struggling that just means I can come in and start doing good."

Adams has become friends with several prospects around the Southeast during the recruiting process.

"The guys I really know are Reuben Foster, Carl Lawson, Dee Liner, Keyante Green, Shaq Wiggins, Tray Matthews, Trey Johnson, and Tyshon Dye."

Foster, Lawson, Liner and Johnson are Auburn commitments. Green is committed to Purdue. Wiggins and Matthews are Georgia pledges and Dye is committed to Clemson.

Adams maintained his stance that he will make a signing day decision in February.
