"Jamar is the most talented player I've ever coached," Butler Defensive Backs Coach Steve Shaughnessy said about the newest Wolverine, Jamar Adams (Sept. 6 official visit, 2003 U-M Camper, 2001 U-M Camper, V-Tech Nike stats: 6-2 1/2,193 lbs., 4.13 sec. Shuttle, 33.2 inch vertical jump … 3.0 GPA/940 SAT). "I've been in coaching for over 30 years. He reminds me a lot of another kid I coached, Robert Massey, who went on to the NFL."
Shaughnessy spoke highly of Adams not only as a player, but as a member of the community, "We have a program here called 'The Dream Team'," he said. "These kids go out and work with other kids in the local elementary schools. Jamaer is one of the leaders of this group.
"On the field he's a tremendous hitter. He's a sure tackler and has fantastic cover skills. Jamar also has great feet and body control."
Shaughnessy also spoke highly of Adams' work ethic, "He's a real worker," he said. "He comes to every practice ready to give 100%. He brings it all to the field. He's also a good student acdemicallty. I know he has over a 3.0 grade point average and some semesters I know he's had over a 3.5, so he hits the books as well."
