"It felt amazing to get an offer from Florida," said the Pennsylvania native. "I've always loved watching the Gators play, and knowing that I now have the opportunity to play for them is amazing."
The Central Catholic standout was offered by Florida assistant Chris Rumph, and although it's a new offer, Adams loves the tradition and the history of the program.
"I know that Florida has a very good, hard nosed football program and also has a good school," said Adams. "I really like the Gators right now, definitely a school I want to learn more about."
Florida entered a crowded field for Scout's No. 6 inside linebacker. Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Penn State, Pittsburgh, West Virginia and Wisconsin are just come of the schools going after Adams. However, the 6-foot-2, 225-pounder has no leaders among the list and is still weighing his options.
"I'm open to all of my options," he said. "I'd say all of the schools that have offered are going after me pretty good but I think Penn State, Pitt, Notre Dame, and Stanford are after me the hardest."
Adams has already made trips to Pitt and State College the last few weeks, however, is set to attend Notre Dame's junior day on March 19th.
Adams does not have a set timeline for his decision, but he has one big factor he needs from a school: balance.
"I want very good academics with very good football at a place that would be a great fit for me."
