COLLEGE PARK, MD- Franklin High School (Reisterstown, Md.) 2015 athlete Jordan Adams picked up his first offer from Virginia Tech last week and he is beginning to turn heads on the recruiting trail.
Maryland is one of the school taking notice of the 6-foot, 165-pound athlete and on June 26, he came out to the Terps one-day camp to learn a little but more about his hometown team.
"Coach Dudzinski came up to the school during the evaluation period to check me out. He wanted me to come up to campus to see what was going on and come out to camp so they can see what I can do."
Adams was hoping to impress the Maryland staff during camp, however, he was injured and could not participate.
"I thought I might pick up an offer today," Adams said. "They like my strategy of thinking, they like how I run crisp routes, how I attack the ball at the highest point and how I know when to cut on the field. I think once they see out there again I could pick it [the offer] up."
Adams is very familiar with Maryland's program and he has been to campus a number of times.
"I have been up here at least five times, its not too far from where I live," Adams said. "I wouldn't mind being up here one day."
The Indians standout plays both wide receiver and defensive back, something he feels gives him an edge on the field.
"First off I know how defensive backs are going to try and stop me so that gives me a little bit of an advantage," Adams said. "As a defensive back I know that I just need to read the hips the majority of the time. If you know where the hips are going you just have to follow them."
As a wide receiver, Adams said one of his role model's is none other than Maryland's sophomore sensation, Stefon Diggs.
"I mean it's really impressive to see what Maryland does out there with their receivers," Adams said. "I really watch Stefon Diggs, the way he goes hard out there, his speed. He is one of the best receivers in college right now."
Adams still has two years of high school football left to play, but he is already hitting the gym hard and preparing to play at the next level.
"I train everyday. I hit the weight room everyday for almost two hours and I do a lot of speed work," Adams said. "I still have some more camps this summer. I will be at Old Dominion and Rutgers camp so just working hard."
