Mississippi All-Star: Parker Adamson

Parker Adamson is one of the top quarterbacks in the state of Mississippi for the 2013 signing class. Major college scholarship offers have remained elusive for the personable Adamson. The talented signal caller is hopeful that a strong showing in the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star game will boost his recruiting stock.

"I think things have gone pretty well," said Adamson of the practice sessions. "The first day everybody was just trying to get situated with each other.

"Today is the last full day of practice before we get ready to go play on Saturday.

"I feel like we're going to be ready and that we're going to do a good job."

Adamson has had a lot of fun getting to know his teammates and he believes the unit has a lot of special talent.

"The recivers have been really good," said Adamson. "They're fast and their huge.

"Our defensive line is really good. Chris Jones is huge and he's all over the place.

"We have weapons everywhere and that makes it that much easier on a quarterback.

"It's good when you can have confidence in the players that you have. I know we can throw it in their general area and they can go make the play."

Adamson has watched as the pass protections for the team have improved throughout the week.

"The first day was hard," said Adamson. "The center and quarterback exchange was something we had to work on.

"The guys had to get their splits down and that's part of it because they don't know each other.

"Yesterday when we came back out, it was like we had been practicing together for years."

Adamson has some opportunities for next fall, but he is still being patient with the recruiting process.

"I still have the offer from UT-Martin and I spoke with Coach (Hugh) Freeze a couple of weeks ago about a preferred walk on spot at Ole Miss," said Adamson. "I am waiting to see if this game will turn something up for me.

"I am just waiting to see how things go."
