Adams looking for that bond

Montravius Adams has been on six different college campuses over the summer and he is working on building that bond with players and coaches. That is what it will come down to for him.

"I visited Auburn and Clemson twice, then Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, and Michigan State once this summer," Montravius Adams told Scout. "I just wanted to get out, see how things go on a daily basis with the players, and just spend time with different coaches."

The time he spent with players and coaches in June and July could mean something when Adams gets ready to make his decision on which college he will attend.

"The most important thing to me is the bond I have with the players on the team and the coaches that coach the team. I want to go to a school where I get along with the people there and where I am comfortable with everyone.

"I am not worried about the depth charts and things like that, but I just want to be where I am happy. Of course I want my mom to like the school too, but the biggest part of my decision will be the bond I have with people at that school."

Speaking on the mom, Adams has only had his mother on two visits and they have been to the same school. That school was Auburn, so does that mean anything?

"No sir, it doesn't, it just worked out where she could come with me those times," said the top defensive tackle in the country. "She does like Auburn a lot and she likes the people she has met there, but she will see many more schools between now and Signing Day."

That first Wednesday every year is Signing Day and that is when this 6-foot-3, 300 pound Vienna, Ga. native plans to announce his decision.

"I have not changed my mind on that. I will still be deciding on Signing Day and I don't see myself changing my mind about that."

His mind has been open to all schools for some time, but he does have a plan to cut it down to half a dozen.

"I think I will narrow my list down at the end of the season. I do not think it will be before then, but I guess it could be a little earlier.

"I still do not have a leader or anything, but I will be thinking about that as I take visits during the season."

Adams plans to take all five of his official visits and he has three schools in mind right now.

"USC, Oregon, and LSU are the schools I plan to visit right now and I am not sure about the other two," he said. "I know I can take unofficial visits to schools closer to home, so I am looking to visit the schools farther away officially.

"If I do not visit a school officially, that does not mean I don't like them, it just means I can get there a little easier and quicker."

Adams is the no. seven ranked prospect in the country on Scout.
