Academics Spotlight Trip to Athens for Adams

Georgia academics sparked the interest of five-star defensive tackle Montravius Adams during his visit to Athens over the weekend.

Adams visited Athens with fellow recruits Alvin Kamara, Davin Bellamy and Reuben Foster. Though Adams had plenty of time to speak with Georgia coaches and players, most of his attention was focused on the university's academics. Adams plans to major in business and minor in communications, and he said speaking with advisors about his academic plans was the highlight of his trip.

"We had a lot of fun," Adams said. "I enjoyed speaking with the coaches and hanging out with the players, but the thing I enjoyed most was talking about the academics."

This was a big recruiting weekend for Georgia with time winding down before National Signing Day. Georgia hosted a variety of highly-touted recruits on the verge of making their decisions, and the meeting wasn't the first between each of those players.

"We're all good friends," Adams said. "We've gotten a chance to be around each other before this, so it was good to see them again."

On the trip, the four recruits took time to pose for a photo wearing Georgia jersey tops. Adams donned the same number 52 he did at Dooly County his junior and senior seasons, but said he doesn't plan to wear that number in college.

"I wanted to wear number one in the picture," Adams said. "I want to wear number one in college because it's my favorite number."

Adams' mother accompanied him on his trip to Athens, but he said the two haven't had a chance to sit down and reflect on the weekend's events yet. Adams' car ride back to Vienna consisted of only rest and relaxation.

"I didn't even get a chance to ask her about it because when I got in the car I went to sleep," Adams said.

Adams is still on the fence about his final decision, but this weekend's events had an impact on him from an academic standpoint. Athens was the last stop on Adams' recruiting tour so he will take the next week to weigh his options before the fast-approaching signing day on Feb. 6th.

Adams plans to go public with his decision on National Signing Day. He has plenty of highlights to reflect on from his recent recruiting visits, but Georgia will hope that Adams' interest in its business degree program will play a large part in his ultimate decision.
