Late Starter Attracting Attention From Colleges

This large lineman talks about his interest in Auburn and other colleges.

New Orleans, La.--It is safe to assume that although he is still a relative novice playing the game of football that big Seth Adams will be on the radar of college coaching staffs around the Southeast.

The 6-3, 285-pound defensive lineman was one of the more impressive physical specimens who attended a one-day football camp at Auburn. He is expected to cause some serious problems for offensive linemen this fall as they match up against traditional Louisiana prep football powerhouse St. Augustine.

Adams says the trip to Auburn for the camp and other camps he has attended like the MSL Combine in New Orleans have been helpful. "The information you get about playing football is not a bad thing to know," he says. "Even if what is being taught is something that you already have learned, it is good to get out there on the field and sharpen your skills. I like going to the camps."

The big defensive lineman played football for the first time last year. This season, his role is expected to increase as he moves into the starting lineup at defensive tackle.

"I have probably been working on my technique and ball get-off more than anything," says Adams, who is trying to improve his 5.2 40-yard dash time. "I have picked up my strength level. That is one of the tools I have been trying to sharpen." The lineman bench presses 365 pounds.

Adams, who is interested in studying computer science or business management in college, is hearing from a variety of collegiate coaching staffs, but says it is too early to get serious about making a decision. "Every school has something I like about them, but I haven't chosen a favorite yet," he says.
