Adams Looking at Elite Options

Jamal Adams, a 6-foot-0, 185-pound safety from Lewisville (Texas) Hebron High has developed in to one of the top prospects in the country for the Class of 2014.

Programs like Baylor, Iowa, Kentucky, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, West Virginia have all stepped up to the plate with offers and Adams is still considering all options.

"Really, honestly I am just trying to concentrate on all the schools that offer me," Adams answered when asked if any of his offers stand out above the rest. "I have much respect for all the schools out there, so I just can't have one or two or a couple, I really like all of them really."

But there are still some schools out there that the talented Class of 2014 Top 100 member is still hoping joins the offer mix.

"Oregon, Florida, Alabama, USC – just top teams like that," Adams said when asked who he was still hungry to earn offers from.

Recently he has been busy taking some unofficial visits. He has spent time in Austin to see UT take on West Virginia, Fort Worth to see TCU play Texas Tech and he was one of the many top-tier prospects on hand at the Red River Rivalry as a guest of OU.

He broke down each stop.

Texas - "UT was great man. It was a live atmosphere. It was my first game, so it was a great game to be at. What impressed me was just the way they get after it down there. They are just aggressive and try to make plays."

Red River Rivalry - "It was great. It was a wild atmosphere seeing that for the first time. OU brought it to them and Texas did not bring their 'A game', but I go to give it to OU. They did what they had to do and got the win."

TCU - "For it being my first time to be at TCU's football it was a really great experience. The fans got after it, the atmosphere was great overall. The facilities were real nice, they're some of the top ones I've seen."

Adams stars on both sides of the ball for the Hawks at safety and running back. He is also a dangerous return man. He feels like hard work he has put in this off-season has made him a more complete player on the field as a junior.

"Really just being more aggressive playing defensive back – just coming up and making hits," Adams said of his biggest strengths. "I just try to make plays and be a play maker out there for my team."

"I just need to keep working hard, stay humble and being a play maker out there."
