Two-Way Juco Still Looking at the Tigers

An Auburn football recruiting report features an update on a junior college prospect.

Wesson, Miss.--Heading into the second half of his junior college football season at Copiah-Lincoln Community College, Ken Adams says he is happy with how he is playing.

"The season is going pretty good," he tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "We are 3-2. We played Coahoma last week and we won (16-15). I feel like I'm doing pretty good. I am mostly playing defensive end. The only time I am on offense is in goal line situations when I line up at tight end."

A two-way high school standout at defensive end and tight end/wide receiver at Enterprise, he was a sign-and-place commitment to the former Auburn coaching staff. Coach Gene Chizik and his new staff are also recruiting Adams, who has grown from 6-3, 220 as a high school senior to 6-5, 243 pounds.

"I went to Auburn for the West Virginia game," Adams says. "I enjoyed myself. That was a good game. The guys looked like they were having fun out there playing in that game."

He plans to see the Tigers play again this season. "I am trying to see when the next time I am going to be free to go to Auburn," he says. "Auburn is talking to me about playing both defensive end and tight end. Coach (Phillip) Lolley is recruiting me, but I also talk to Coach (Tracy) Rocker and Coach (Jay) Boulware a lot."

Rocker coaches the defensive line for Auburn and Boulware is in charge of the tight ends.

Commenting on recruiting, Adams says he may visit another SEC program. "I am still open-minded. Tennessee is recruiting me, too, and we are trying to put something together now."

Last Saturday he had six tackles and for the season the sophomore says he has 4 1/2 sacks headed into game six this Saturday at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in Perkinston.

Adams left high school early to get a head start on junior college. "Everything with school is pretty good,"?he says. "I am planning to graduate in December."
