Wide Receiver Chooses Tigers

Coach Tommy Tuberville's Tigers have picked up another football verbal commitment.

Kennesaw, Ga.--Auburn picked up its eighth verbal commitment for the 2008 football signee class when Darvin Adams chose the Auburn Tigers on Friday night.

Adams, who says he currently checks in at 6-3, 186 pounds, notes that he picked Auburn over LSU and Tennessee.

A standout at multiple Auburn summer camps, Adams also had offers from Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Virginia Tech.

"I really feel good about the coaching staff at Auburn," Adams tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "I liked LSU and Tennessee, but after talking it over with my father, Auburn is the place for me."

Darvin Adams has a reputation as a physical wide receiver.

Adams, who showed good speed at the Auburn camps, says he is not satisfied with that part of his game. "I run a 4.48 in the 40, but I am still working to get that down. I would say that is my strength along with catching the football. Actually, one of my strongest points is blocking. I actually like blocking."

Adams, who also plays power forward in basketball, is a two-way player in football who also lines up in the secondary for the Harrison High School. He was a standout on both sides of the football as a junior when he played quarterback. However, as a senior he is projected to return to wide receiver, the position he played as a sophomore.

A visitor to Auburn for both individual and 7-on-7 camps in his high school career, Adams says, "I have been going there since the ninth grade. I have been liking Auburn for a long time. I've gotten familiar with the coaches, Coach (Greg) Knox, Coach (Tommy) Tuberville, Coach (Will) Muschamp. When I go there I feel like I'm at home."
