Georgia Tech offensive line coach Mike Sewak made the trip to South Georgia to watch Adams and his teammates. Tarik was hoping to talk to Coach Sewak but NCAA rules didn’t allow that. “I hope to talk to the coaches to find out how they felt I played in the spring game.”

Tarik has visited Tech twice and hopes to return to Tech for their June summer camp. “I plan on showing the coaches what I can do and get pointers on how to improve my play.” Adams hopes his play will lead to a Tech offer. Run blocking is one phase of offensive line play in which Tarik feels he excels. “I hope to improve my speed and footwork.”

A rising Tech football program has caught Tarik’s eye. “They had a tremendous season last year and they are really poised to build off of that season.” Tarik is also impressed by the school’s academics and the city of Atlanta. Adams is looking for a good business school that can eventually get him into physical therapy. “I understand a good business school can get you there.”

Adams has talked to former teammate and current Tech player Tre Jackson. “He really likes it up there and we talk from time to time about Tech, the school, and the football program."

Tech is looking at the 6’3 1/2”-290 Adams as a center or guard. Tarik plays tackle for is high school team. “I understand they like for their interior linemen to be bigger than most other schools.”

Tarik doesn’t feel that any of the schools that have offered him are recruiting any harder than the others. Other than Tech, Tarik feels that Mississippi State, Purdue, Utah and Vanderbilt could be close to offering.

A summer decision is a good possibility for Tarik. “I definitely want to make a decision before I go back to school.”
