Follett Hoping To Coax Offer From State

"Everything is going great. I've been working with some outstanding coaches while day camping at a few select programs. I decided not to "overcamp" this summer and stay focused on working with my team." --Alma QB Adam Follett

EAST LANSING -Enthusiastic, hard-working and eager to learn. Those traits exhibited by Alma quarterback Adam Follett have made him a coaching favorite throughout his young career.

But now Follett is preparing for a career moment more important than any he's faced to date, he's preparing to visit with the Michigan State coaching staff on Monday and he hopes to in the words of former head coach George Perles, 'knock their socks off' in a bid to coax and offer from the MSU coaching staff.

AT this point, it is unknown whether the staff will extend an offer to any quarterback this season.

Looking at the crowded Michigan ranks of top quarterbacks, Follett, along with Chris Lum of Lake Orion, Aaron Shavers of Inkster, Anthony Mifsud of Dearborn, Spencer Krauss of Clinton, Kevin Smith of Detroit Central and Brendan Kay of Marine City are all in a close knit race for the top spot. The problem is none has really separated himself from the pack.

One thing about Follett is he's a winner. He's 25-1 as a starter at Caledonia and now as he heads over to Alma, he's attempting to join the elite level of signal callers that play at the next level.

When we talked to Follett he was enthusiastic about his summer and his upcoming camp at MSU.

"Everything is going great. I've been working with some outstanding coaches while day camping at a few select programs. I decided not to "overcamp" this summer and stay focused on working with my team. Recruiting is going good," reported the 6-foot-5, 210-pound signal caller.

So who's showing interest in him at this point?

"MSU, Purdue, Virginia, Indiana, Western Michigan and Northern Illinois all have coaches that I really like. There's a bunch of other schools recruiting me that I don't know much about. I'm just keeping a low profile and working on getting better every day," he said.

So what does the near future hold for him?

"I'm doing 7 x 7's with my team and working on strength and mechanics."

"I'll be at MSU Monday to work with Coach Warner, I can't wait! I'm convinced Coach Dantonio and the MSU staff will bring championship football back to East Lansing, and it would be fun to be a part of it," said Follett.

"As for the rest of the summer, in a couple weeks I'll be at Purdue & Northwestern, then we start football practice. I'm in no hurry to make decisions on college, my goal is to help my team win one game at a time through the end of November. For now, I'm just having fun the summer of my senior year!"
