Jeff Adams talks favorites

Trigg County 3-star offensive lineman Jeff Adams talks to Scout.com about his favorites

Offensive lineman Jeff Adams (6-8, 325, 5.4) is keeping seven schools in the mix.

"I like UCLA, Louisville, Tennessee, Kentucky, Miami, Nebraska and Oklahoma," said Adams, of Trigg County High School in Cadiz, Ky. "UCLA and Louisville haven't offered yet.

"I don't have any kind of leader right now. I am just looking at all these schools and seeing what they have to offer me."

Adams visited Nebraska on Sept. 9.

"Craig (Roark) (offensive line) was my host -- he was a good guy. When I got there I went to the hotel (Embassy Suites) then went to eat at Misty's followed by a tour of campus. Then I got to go see the facilities and the stadium. At the game, I got to walk out onto the field and the crowd was saying my name -- that was crazy!

"After the game I got to go into the locker room, then went to the dorms and played some games. I had a good time," Adams said.

"The coaches there are nice -- real forward and everything. I would rate my visit a solid 9.5."

Schools that may get officials include Oklahoma, Tennessee and Kentucky. "I am still thinking about which schools I am going to visit. I will probably set them up after my season," he said.

"Even though Louisville and UCLA haven't offered, they are interested in me, and I am interested in them. Louisville is only about four hours from home and their fan support is good there.

"UCLA has called a couple of times and they are waiting on some game films from me. They are a long way from home and I have never been that far from home, so I would probably get homesick or something. But I don't know because I haven't been out there," he added.

"I like Tennessee's offense. The use a lot of pass protection and that's what I'm best at.

"I have been to a couple of Kentucky games this season, and I am going to try to get up there again this weekend. They are only about four hours away from home. Kentucky and Louisville are about the same distance away and are the closest to home. It's real nice there and they are getting a lot of new stuff -- like new dorm rooms and sports facilities. I have former classmates there, and a former teammate -- Kenny Ray (Turner) (offensive tackle).

"I hear it is nice up at Oklahoma, so I may go check them out.

"I have been a fan of Miami for a long time. They are one of my favorite teams. I have been hearing good stuff about them.

"I want to go to a place where I can feel at home -- people and stuff like that," he explained. "As long as I get to play, it doesn't matter how good they are."

Trigg County (7-2) finishes up their regular season on Oct. 28 when they host Lone Oak (Paducah).
