KSR Speaks with Recruit Brian Adams

One of the first commitments Kentucky received in the 09 class was from South Forsyth's Brian Adams. Adams played quarterback for his high school, but he's capable of playing any number of positions at Kentucky. After battling a shoulder injury this season, Adams is ready to get back on the field.

Standing 6-foot-5, 210-pounds, Brian Adams played quarterback his last two years of high school. But because of his sub-4.5 speed, Adams can probably line up at any number of positions for the Wildcats. "(Kentucky) talked about me starting off at the slot. Coach Phillips told me that I'm more of a slot receiver. They've also mentioned that I could be a punt returner or a safety," said Adams.

The ability to line up anywhere is right up Adams' alley. "I like to make plays. I returned punts. I played quarterback, safety and wide receiver. I like to have the ball in my hands," said Adams about his abilities.

Adams does find room for improvement, though. "I need to work on my strength. I need to get stronger, especially after the shoulder thing. I also need to work on my film study," said Adams.

Four games into this season, Adams injured his shoulder and was out for the remainder of the season. But he expects things to be back to normal soon. "It should be clear in about two weeks. I take a test next Tuesday. The goal is to pass it then. I got all my bicep and triceps strength back. I just need to work on the smaller muscles in my shoulder," he said.

Adams has been a Wildcat commitment for months, but he just took his visit to Kentucky in December. "I was there for the Indiana game. I was there with Terrell Mitchell (TE - McEachern High) and Chris Matthews (WR - Harbor College)," said Adams. "The coaches made me feel at home. Coach Phillips and coach Ortmeyer did a great job. I just felt right. I felt like UK was the place to be," Adams finished.

Adams picked the Wildcats over schools such as Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech and Purdue.
