Defensive End Still Weighing Options

Junior college defensive end prospect Ken Adams gives a Monday update on his recruiting status.

Wesson, Miss.--Auburn and other colleges are still awaiting word on who defensive end Ken Adams from Copiah-Lincoln Community College will sign with this week.

"I am still thinking about my decision," Adams told Inside the Auburn Tigers on Monday afternoon after finishing his junior college classes. "My father is coming to pick me up and we are going to talk about it."

Adams said he wasn't sure exactly when he was going to be ready to make a decision, but said he expected it to happen soon. He can sign scholarship papers as early as Wednesday of this week.

Adams, who took an official visit to Auburn this past weekend, had committed to Tennessee earlier this fall. However, he decided to look at other colleges and visited North Carolina, too, before deciding on visiting Auburn.

Adams played receiver and defensive end at Enterprise High School.

Originally from Enterprise High School, Adams signed with Auburn as a senior in high school before heading to junior college. He played tight end as a freshman and saw spot duty at defensive end. He moved to defense on a full-time basis as a sophomore and had nine sacks as an end for his team that finished the season with a 6-3 record.

Adams, who wants to major in exercise science, notes that he wants to be a football coach after graduation.

The defensive end says he currently weighs in at 245 pounds on his six-foot-five frame.
