Visiting Prospect High on the Tigers

A report is featured on a high school senior prospect who will visit Auburn this weekend.

Enterprise, Ala.--Enterprise High School Coach Kevin Collins says he expects Ken Adams to have a good trip to Auburn when the EHS senior football player takes an official visit to Auburn this weekend.

Collins notes that a variety of colleges have recruited the two-way athlete who has played end on defense and tight end and wide receiver on offense, but says that Adams has been focused on the Tigers for a long time.

"I think Auburn is interested in Ken as a defensive end," notes Collins, who says that Collins has excellent potential on either side of the football.

"He is 6-4, 3/8 inches tall and weighs 220 pounds and he can fly," the coach says. "He runs in the high 4.5s or low 4.6s (40-yard dash)."

Adams, who also plays basketball, only plans to take one official visit and that is to check out the Tigers. "He really likes Auburn," the coach points out.

On the field, Collins adds that Adams is a pleasure to coach and notes that he is well respected at EHS. "He is a great kid and he is a favorite of the teacher in every class he takes," the coach says. "He comes to class every day, sits in his seat, he is quiet and does what the teacher asks."

Adams was voted captain of the football team his senior season and his coach notes that he is still a player who is developing. "He is a very explosive athlete, the kind of player who excites college coaches," Collins says. "He has great feet. He is a player who developed a great deal in our program at Enterprise High and Ken has so much potential to continue to improve he is an exciting prospect."

Auburn currently has a former Enterprise High defensive end on the roster. Raven Gray enrolled at Auburn this month after spending two years in junior college at Copiah-Lincoln in Mississippi. Collins says he believes Adams will need to take a similar route to college football because of his academic situation.
