Brandon High returned to Hoover for the 7-on-7 tournament and did not disappoint after a semifinal showing.

"We just wanted to come out there and keep winning," Adams said. "We just wanted to get the championship. It was unfortunate that we didn't, but I think we represented Brandon and Mississippi well. We played a lot of good ball."

The Bulldogs went 7-0 in pool play and then won their next five games to reach the semifinals. They were knocked out by Spanish Fort (Ala).

"We just came out there and tried to compete and win it. I got a chance to play tight end throughout the tournament and that was fun. We traveled to Jackson and won that tournament. We went to Tupelo and won that tournament to get here (to Hoover). I played a lot of tight end over the summer in these 7-on-7 tournaments. I hope to get the ball in my hands some next fall. When you have someone like Gardner Minshew throwing the rock around you want in on the fun too. But mainly our focus is to just get better each and every week."

Fletcher Adams named Ole Miss his leader to the media at Hoover but was a little more diplomatic this time around.

"I guess they are, but I really don't want to say right now. All of my top five (Bama, Florida, OM, MSU, LSU) are really about the same, really."

The '13 All-State selection wants to make a decision before his senior season starts but he keeps going back and forth with that idea.

"I want to make a decision some time in August but I do not know. I don't want to commit somewhere until I am 100% sure of my decision, and I am not there yet."

Fletcher does have one unofficial visit on tap.

"I am going up to Ole Miss August 8th. I want to get up there one last time before practice starts. I just want to come up there and chill a little bit with Breeland Speaks, Rod Taylor, and the Nkemdiche brothers. Me and Robert and Denzel got real cool when I went up there and visited in the spring. I have known Rod and Breeland for a while. Those are my boys, but I'mm not going to go on a lot of visits before my season starts. I am really just focused on my season right now. I am trying to push my recruitment to the side for now."

Does Fletcher plan on taking his official visits even if he does make a commitment before school starts?

"Probably, yes. I will for sure take official visits to four of them after my season is over.
