Adams Staying In Touch With the Tigers

An Auburn football recruiting report features an update on a prospect who is playing in the junior college ranks.

Wesson, Miss.--Former Enterprise High School star and 2008 Auburn football signee Ken Adams took a recent visit to the Auburn campus to meet with the coaching staff.

Adams, who will be a sophomore this fall at Copiah-Lincoln Junior College, will open his season on August 27th with a home game vs. East Mississippi.

"I talked to Coach Lolley, Coach Rocker, the offensive coordinator, the tight ends coach and I talked to Coach Roof," Adams says.

Phillip Lolley coaches cornerbacks for the Tigers, Tracy Rocker coaches the defensive linemen and Ted Roof is the defensive coordinator for the Tigers. Jay Boulware coaches the tight ends and Gus Malzahn coordinates the offense.

A standout at tight end and defensive end at Enterprise High who was one of the top high school seniors in southeast Alabama, Adams saw action on both offense and defense last season at Copiah-Lincoln. "I am supposed to be playing more defense this year, but I have a feeling I might still be playing some offense," he says.

"I played offense last year, but the last three games of the season they started using me on defense so I can play on both sides of the ball," he notes. "Last season was pretty good."

When he signed with the Tigers, Adams was a bit over six-foot-three and weighed 220 pounds. "I am 6-5, 243 pounds now and I am still growing," he notes.

Adams says he recently finished his summer semester classes and "passed everything" as he plans to finish in time to transfer to a Division I school for the 2010 season. Although his commitment was to the former Auburn coaching staff, he notes that he is still very interested in the Tigers and believes Auburn is interested in him, too.

He says that he went to junior college with the goal of getting better academically and athletically and notes he is making progress. "I have improved a lot," he says. "I get better every day in practice. There is a lot of competition in practice and in games. I am learning to be more football smart and becoming a better person on and off the field."

Adams says he has one main goal as he prepares for the 2009 season. "I just want to help my team win as much as possible," he says.

One of the potential key players for the 2009 Auburn team, defensive lineman Nick Fairley, played with Adams last season at Copiah-Lincoln. Adams says AU fans will enjoy watching the newcomer. "He is going to be a great player for Auburn," Adams contends.
