"I like Miami, Florida, Florida State and Georgia. That's in no order," Spencer Adkins said.
What stands out about those schools on his list?
"I like pretty much the same thing about all three of the Florida
schools. I like their aggressiveness. I think they can make me the best player I
can be. I just like their programs overall. With Georgia, I just kind of bonded
with their coaches, and they have had some success the past couple of years. I
think I could help them."
What are the deciding factors in his recruitment?
"I'm just looking for a comfort feeling. I don't want to feel like
an alien. I need to feel comfortable at my home. I want to go somewhere that
there's some competition so it will make me better, and of course I'm
looking at education also."

"I'm going to wait until signing day before committing. It's one

Does Spencer feel any pressure to stay close to home?
"Not really. It's just what I want to do. I'm the type of person
that needs to be close to my family."
How has the 5-star LB's senior year progressed to this point?
"My season is going well. Were living up to the expectations and were
7-0. I have 12 tackles for loss and 8 sacks so far this season. We play Gulf
Coast this Friday."
Which schools have visited Adkins for one of his games this season?
"Florida and Miami have been down so far. Some of the other ones are
talking about coming also. I know that I'm going to the Miami and Clemson game
myself, for sure."
This story should be an interesting one to watch as we look forward to
National Signing Day 2005.
