A few Choice words

Since committing to Clemson back in late May, Adam Choice hasn't been able to make it back to Tigertown for a visit.

RB Adam Choice Profile

There have been a couple of events that the three-star from Thomasville, Ga. has wanted to make. But, for one reason or another, the timing just hasn't worked.

"Every time I've tried to, I couldn't. I couldn't go to camp. I couldn't go to the cookout, because I had to work. We as a family are trying to work it out, but trying to get the point where we can get off, everybody can get off [work]. We'll just have to keep trying," Choice recently told CUTigers.

He's spent much of the summer refining his game for one final year of high school ball A.T. Thomas County Central.

"I worked with my cousin, Joe Burns," Choice said. "We worked on some open field moves. We didn't really work on them. We talked about them, watched some film. He told me things I could have done."

The next several months will be "bittersweet" for him.

"This will be my last season playing with my hometown friends and kids that I grew up with," Choice said. "But, at the same time, we want to go to state. Hopefully, I can keep just getting better. Keep it going in college and succeed there as well."

Ranked by Scout.com as the No. 31 running back in the country, Choice plays quarterback for Thomas County Central. So, he'll have to adjust to a new position once he gets to Clemson.

"Running-wise, I don't think it'll be too different. The only thing I can think of that will be different, how I hit the holes, reading lanes and blocking schemes," he said. "Basically, it'll just be learning a different position that I've never played. As far as me having the ball, I don't think it'll be too much different. It's something I'm looking forward to."

Choice rushed for 1,650 yards and 23 touchdowns as a junior.
