Adams Enjoys AU Visit, Decision Coming Soon

An Auburn football recruiting report features comments from Ken Adams on his visit to Auburn.

Wesson, Miss.--Ken Adams from Copiah-Lincoln Community College said on Sunday he is close to making a decision on his college choice.

"I am just looking for a place where I know I will be happy both on and off the field," the 6-5, 245-pound defensive end said after taking an official visit to Auburn this weekend.

"I want to go to place where I am going to graduate and be in good hands and everything," he added. "I am probably going to major in exercise science and I am interested in being a football coach someday."

Adams played tight end as a freshman at Copiah-Lincoln and moved to defensive end as a sophomore, where he finished the season with nine sacks for a team that finished with a 6-3 record.

The defensive END is scheduled to graduate this month and can enroll in classes at a Division I program in January with two years of eligibility. He noted that his final junior college class is scheduled on Monday and he hopes to have a decision as early as Monday.

He said that he has been interested in Auburn for a long time going back to high school. "Everything is pretty much the same with Auburn," he said. "I am good with everybody there.

"I am just trying to find someplace where I know I am going to be happy," Adams said. "They (Auburn's coaches) told me they want me to come back home to play ball."

Adams said his player host was defensive tackle Jake Ricks and he said he had a really good visit. He noted that he also spent time with Tracy Rocker, who would be his position coach if he comes to Auburn. "Me and Coach Rocker are really cool," Adams stated.

The prospect made the official visit with his parents who drove up from Enterprise and he pointed out that they enjoyed the visit, too.

Adams, who arrived for the visit on Friday, met with academic officials, watched Auburn's first bowl practice on Saturday and attended the team's honors banquet on Saturday night and then hung out with players. He headed back to junior college on Sunday afternoon.

"I am going to do a lot of thinking on my flight back," he said, adding that he would spend more time talking to his parents about what to do.

Adams committed to Tennessee earlier this fall, but decided to continue to look at offers. Adams took an official visit to the University of North Carolina earlier this month. On Sunday when asked if he was still committed to the Vols, he said that he would have a decision on where he is going to college on Monday.

He originally signed with the Tigers as a senior at Enterprise, Ala., High School with the former Auburn coaching staff, a group that helped place him in junior college.

Because he is graduating this month, Adams can count back on Auburn's 2009 scholarship total.
