3-Star Lineman Picks Up Missouri Offer

Following his recent unofficial visit to the University of Missouri, this 3-star lineman just picked up an offer from the Tigers following it. He talks to ShowMeMizzou.com about his visit and new SEC offer.

Following his unofficial visit to Missouri earlier this week, 2014 OT prospect Paul Adams 6’6” 270 Nashville (TN) Christ Presbyterian Academy received a Missouri offer.

Adams is a multi-sport athlete who has been speaking with Missouri Assistant Coach Pat Washington. He had been hoping for a Missouri offer, and on Thursday evening, he spoke with Missouri Head Coach Gary Pinkel.

“I called Coach Pinkel, and he offered me a scholarship tonight,” said Adams. “It’s really a special (offer) to me. It’s my first SEC offer.”

Adams currently holds an offer from Cincinnati, in addition to Missouri. He’s also being recruited by hometown Vanderbilt, among others.

“(My Missouri visit) was great!” exclaimed Adams. “We watched some of their practice, and they took us on campus before practice. We went to the business school. That’s what I want to major in. That was just incredible! I met some professors………………………………………. That was really fun!”

Adams said that he really liked the way that Missouri practices. While on campus, he met with the Missouri offensive line coaches, Josh Henson and Bruce Walker.

“I had a meeting with Coach Henson and Coach Walker,” explained Adams. “It was just a great meeting!”

Adams plays basketball and is also a member of his school’s track team. He plays left tackle for Presbyterian, and he reports a 5.1-second forty, and a 25” standing vertical jump. His maximum in the bench press is 275 pounds.

“I was very impressed (with Missouri),” said Adams. “I was very impressed with everything about Missouri…………………………………. It’s very exciting!”

Adams is currently wide open regarding his recruitment. He wants to look at all of his options. Right now, he’s considering making a decision prior to his senior season.

“Missouri is probably my favorite right now,” said Adams. “I am just very impressed with the coaching staff. I’m very impressed with the campus. I could see myself being there. I just loved being with the players! It’s just my kind of a team.”

Adams explained that Missouri is currently the standard by which he’ll be measuring other schools. He is planning to make a return visit to Missouri for the Tigers’ Spring Game.
