Dooley County High School junior Montravius Adams received offers from Alabama, Auburn and Kentucky all offered earlier this week.

"I got an offer from Clemson when I was going into my 11th grade year," he told CUTigers at the Georgia Junior Bowl last week. "My coach called me [on Dec. 27] and told me that Alabama is about to offer me now."

In addition to the schools that have offered, Georgia, Florida, Florida State, Michigan State, Nebraska, Oregon, Texas A&M and Tennessee are also expressing interest.

"Clemson is my favorite team," Adams said.

What makes the Tigers his favorite?

"The way I feel at home there."

He visited Clemson during the fall for the Florida State game.

"It was good. I liked it, especially when they came down the hill. It was a good game. They got a W and won," Adams said.

While in town, the 6-foot-3, 285-pound prospect toured the campus.

"I liked it. I went and toured around, walked around. It's somewhere I would like to be," he said.

Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell serves as his primary recruiter.

"We talk a lot. We've got a good relationship. He's a good coach. We'd be good together," Adams said.

As a junior, Adams had 85 tackles, 45 tackles for loss and two sacks.
