Profile - Michael Adams
Early on, Summerville, Georgia defensive lineman Michael Adams was only receiving interest from mid-major schools. The versatile 300 pound Adams is now getting interest from P5 schools including offers from two of those P5 schools.
Two of Michael’s recent visits were to Georgia Tech to watch them practice and then a return visit for their spring game. “I loved the intensity and fast pace of their practice. I was impressed.”
Adams has talked with Tech coaches Ted Roof and Mike Pelton. Both have watched film of Adams and are looking to have more one on one time with him. They plan to further evaluate Michael this spring. Adams has submitted his transcripts to Tech. The coaches like Adams as a nose tackle.
Chattooga High School uses Adams in a variety of positions. He has played the 1 and 3 technique and he’s also played defensive end. “My coach has said he was also thinking of using me as an outside linebacker. I move well for someone that is 6' 3" – 300.” Michael is throwing the shot this spring to aid his flexibility and hip movement for those positions.
Tech has not been the only visits for Adams this spring. Middle Tennessee, Southern Miss, and West Virginia are a few of the schools that received visits. The West Virginia visit led to an offer for Michael. His offer total now stands at nine. Adams plans to return to West Virginia this summer along with a visit to Central Florida. Adams is also starting to hear from several SEC schools.
An early college decision doesn’t seem to be a priority for Adams. That decision may not take place until the middle or end of his senior season. “The school I choose will have to have good academics.” Adams hopes to major in medicine or some type of engineering. Michael will also be looking for a school where he feels comfortable and a school where he gets along with the players and coaches.
