At 6-foot-8 and 270 pounds, Jasper, TX standout offensive tackle Jorrie Adams is widely considered one of the premier prospects in the entire state. In helping his team to a 3-1 start this season, Adams has been playing both ways.
"I've been doing pretty good," Adams said. "I didn't play on defense last year so it was kind of hard adjusting to playing so much at a time. We tight right now though."
Adams, who is preparing to take the SAT, said recruiting has been crazy in recent weeks.
"It's tight but it just gets crazy sometimes with everyone calling and everything," he said. "I still get calls from the schools in Texas and people from all over."
What about any of the schools in the state of Florida?
"Yeah, Florida and the University of Miami still call me," he said. "They're just two of the schools trying to get me in for a visit. I haven't worked those out yet, mainly because I'm still wide open. I haven't thought much about recruiting yet."
Adams was asked if UM was one of the schools he would consider visiting.
"Yeah, I'm considering them," he said. "They real tight right now. I'd like to check them out but I don't know if I'll visit or not. I don't know what I'm going to do. All I know is they have a good program and they want me to come in and play left tackle."
Through random name dropping, I was able to identify through Adams that other schools on his list include Texas, Oklahoma, LSU, and Texas A&M.
Jasper head coach Danny Lauve thinks Adams is a very special football player.
"Jorrie is a good athlete that will play left tackle for a very long time," he told Jamie Newberg. "He has a very good understanding of the game, a long reach and the best feet I have ever seen."
