WR Prospect Comments on AU's New Offense

A 2008 football prospect comments on Tony Franklin's new spread offense that Auburn ran in the bowl game.

Kennesaw, Ga.--Harrison High School's Darvin Adams watched on television as Auburn ran its new spread offense for the first time in the Chick-fil-A Bowl as the Tigers defeated Clemson. The wide receiver says he was impressed with what he saw.

"I like the offense," Adams tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "Watching the game, it looks like there are going to be a lot of opportunities for wide receivers to make plays in the passing game. I noticed that they ran a lot of plays in that game. I like the no-huddle."

Prior to the current dead period in recruiting, Adams says he received a phone call from Tony Franklin, who took over as Auburn's new offensive coordinator prior to the start of AU's bowl practices.

"I talked to Coach Franklin and he said he is ready to get me in so I can learn the system and he wants to get me on the field playing next season," Adams says.

Adams helped Harrison High reach the second round of the state football playoffs as a senior. He started every game on offense at wide receiver and at safety on defense. "I got our team's 48-Minute Man Award," the Auburn verbal commitment notes.

The Harrison High standout notes that he is firm in his verbal pledge to be a Tiger and plans to be on campus for an official visit Jan. 11-13th.

Adams, who notes that he currently stands at 6-3, 187 pounds, is also on the basketball team at Harrison High School. "I am playing both small forward and power forward," he says.

Hoops will probably be his final sports competition as a high school athlete. Instead of playing on a spring sports team, he plans to prepare for college football. "I think I am just going to work out," he says.
