Wounded Recruit Checks Out the Tigers

Harrison High School wide receiver Darvin Adams made his official visit to Auburn.

Kennesaw, Ga.--Darvin Adams didn't have to worry about missing a basketball game while taking his official visit to Auburn.

The wide receiver from Harrison High School is temporarily out of action in basketball a breaking a bone in his arm playing football.

"I broke it in an all-star game--the Cobb County Senior Bowl," he says. "I will be out five or six weeks. They said I will be back in time for the basketball playoffs."

The Auburn verbal commitment didn't let his injury or the unusually cold weather cool his enthusiasm about his visit to AU.

"The whole weekend was so good I can't just pick out one thing I liked best," he tells Inside the Auburn Tigers.

Adams notes he likes the player assigned to show him around Auburn. "Rod Smith was my host," he says. "He is a good guy. I didn't know him before my visit, but I had watched him on TV and knew he is a good receiver."

"I met a couple more receivers like James Swinton and Chris Slaughter," he adds. "There were a lot of people I met."

Adams notes that he talked to the receivers about what to expect from the new offensive system being installed by coordinator Tony Franklin, who took over the Auburn offense prior to AU's bowl victory over Clemson.

"The receivers are really excited about the offense," he says. "They said they have a lot to learn, but they say they are ready for it."

Commenting on what else he did on his weekend in Auburn, Adams says, "We took a visit to the academic side of the school. We went to the Tiger Den and chilled in there. They showed us the locker room and the basic stuff. We ate a lot of really good food."

Adams says his official visit confirmed what he already believed that Auburn is where he wants to play his college football. "I am solid on Auburn," he says. "I am coming in to Auburn to get started on June 10th."
