Adams Still Interested In Spartans

One of the nation's top prospects talks about his continued interest in Michigan State.

As the top defensive tackle in the country, Montravius Adams is a wanted man. However, he's not in any hurry to put the brakes on his recruitment.

Is Adams still looking at taking an official visit to Michigan State for the Notre Dame game?

"I don't know if it's going to be an official or an unofficial," said Adams. "But, if I do make the trip, I think I'll make it an official because the last time I visited it was a long ride up there."

While some may take that statement and feel the Spartans might be too far from home, Adams begs to differ.

"Distance is not a factor and is not going to have anything to do with my decision," said Adams. "I just want to play football. For me to go to Michigan State, my mother is going to have to come up there and she is going to have to like it.

"I'm going to have to feel like I'm at home and feel that I get along with the coaches and players. But I've got to feel like I'm at home."

While some top prospects might crumble under the constant pressure the recruiting process brings. Adams feels he's got it under control.

"I'm not really looking to do anything until after my football season," said Adams. "At that time I'll have my Top Six. I feel I've been handling things pretty good and nothing has really surprised me."

While some have given the Spartans an added advantage with current Spartan Keith Mumphery and Adams both coming from Vienna (GA) Dooly County High School, Adams is quick to set the record straight.

"I'm not going to make my decision based on a friendship," said Adams. "I have to find the right place for me."

With Spartans defensive line coach Ted Gill staying in constant contact, Adams has gotten comfortable with his possible future position coach.

"My relationship with Michigan State has been great," said Adams. "We talk from time-to-time as I talk with Coach G (Ted Gill) all the time. He's a cool guy."
