WR/DB High on UM's List

Bradenton (Fla.) Bayshore is having an excellent season this year, as they will take a 5-1 record into Charlotte on Friday in a game that will likely determine the district championship.

One of the major reasons for their success is quarterback SirDarean Adams, who plays a variety of positions -- quarterback, tailback, wide receiver, and free safety.

"I've been playing quarterback mostly this year," said Adams, who has over 1,000 yards of total offense this season. We beat Barron Collier this week and I had 10 carries for 256 yards and three touchdowns. I was running the option and they couldn't stop me. I was just doing my thing out there, that's all."

Adams, who at 6-foot-1 and 220 pounds says he's been clocked at 4.38 over 40 yards, has been making big plays for the last four years.

"I've played everywhere on the field," he said. "I really don't have a preference for when I go to college, as long as I can play. I will too. All I need is a chance and I'll compete with anyone."

The talented athlete has scholarship offers from a number of major programs, including five schools that he plans on making visits to.

"I went to Michigan State last week for an official visit," he said. "It was tight, I hung out with some of their redshirt freshmen. The other two that I know I'll visit for sure are Miami and Ohio State. After that, I'm not sure. Nebraska, Florida, Florida State, there are a few of them (that are still being considered)."

The talented senior said most schools are recruiting him as an athlete since he's such a versatile athlete that could play a number of positions in college.

Adams wasn't listing a favorite previously but it appears that one school might be gaining an edge.

"Man, I'm really liking Miami right now," he said. "I decided to go to Tallahassee for the Florida State game. Coach Kehoe didn't think I was going so he called my house just as Florida State was ready to kickoff. There he is, just before the biggest game of the year, and he calls just to show me how much they want me. I liked that a lot."

Adams, who also attended the Florida game in early September, said he enjoyed the game on Saturday.

"I knew going in who was going to win," he said. "Miami was challenged. I knew they were going to take care of business and they did. They were playing great. Sean Taylor, that man is amazing. You'll see me doing that someday. Actually, the Miami coaches are telling me that I can be the next Sean Taylor for them."
