4-Star Fletcher Adams Picks MSU Over FLA, ALA

Mississippi State fans danced the night away Saturday night after knocking off LSU in famed Death Valley, 34-29. On Monday morning, 4-star defensive tackle Fletcher Adams added to their glee. Yes, it is clear that there is a lot to feel good about right now for those in the Maroon and White. With the addition of Adams to a superb 2015 class, the future looks bright indeed.

Fletcher Adams collected offers from all over the southeast, but in the end the scout.com four star defensive tackle narrowed the field to just four schools, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi State and Ole Miss.

Adams elected to follow his older brother, Nelson Adams, to Starkville to be a part of Geoff Collins' "Psycho Defense".

While it may have taken longer than some expected, Adams is now part of the Bulldog 2015 family.

Brandon High School football coach, Brad Peterson, believes the Bulldogs are getting both a quality player and person.

"Fletcher is a great young man," said Peterson on Monday. "He comes from a great family and he is not the sort of person who is going to embarrass his family or a University."

One of the best attributes the talented defensive tackle possesses is his ability to plug in and fill a need where his team needs him.

"For us, he can play any position on the defensive line," said Peterson. "It just sort of depends on what we need at the time. He can play wherever we need him."

Work ethic and relentless effort are two big parts of the Bulldog creed. According to his head coach, Fletcher Adams has both of those characteristics.

"With a lot of really talented players, you don't always get their best all of the time," said Peterson. "Fletcher is the type of player that is going to play hard every single play.

"He works hard and he's going to give you all he can every single play. That's just the kind of player he is."

Adams chose the Bulldogs over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Miami, North Carolina and Ole Miss among others.

His verbal pledge is the 28th for the Mississippi State 2015 and the latest addition to a tremendous in state haul that features most of the state's top prospects for the 2015 signing class.
