Adams Working Towards College Enrollment

Brandon High School has seen major college recruiters for nearly a decade thanks in large part to the Adams' family. Fletcher, the youngest of three sons, will graduate from BHS this spring bringing an end to an impressive run by the trio of brothers that pushed the Bulldogs to new heights.

The Adams family recently had an enchanted moment of sorts as Tyler Adams celebrated senior day with a start and the final basket of his college career. Sidelined as a senior with a heart condition, Adams was granted an uncontested basket against Seton Hall. On the final possession of his college career, Adams skied high one final time and slammed one home.

The story of Adams' final basket made national sports news.

"I thought that was really cool," Fletcher Adams said. "I was glad that they let him do that. I didn't know what was going to happen, but I am glad he got him one more. A lot of people talked about it on the news. I didn't know how big it was going to be, but it was big."

As Tyler's college career ends and middle brother Nelson's career continues, Fletcher is making the final preparations to begin his own college days.

"It's been a lot different since signing day," Adams laughed. "There's not really anybody calling anymore. It got pretty wild in the end."

One late development raised some eyebrows. An official visit to Ole Miss was called off in the final days of the recruiting process. Adams explained what took place.

"I talked with them and they told me that they wanted me to visit, but that if I knew that I wasn't going to sign with them that they needed to spend their time recruiting guys who weren't committed," Adams explained. "That was fine with me. I knew I was going to sign with Mississippi State, so I knew what they were saying. I wasn't tripping or anything."

Now officially a Mississippi State signee, Adams looks back on the recruiting process and the class he is a part of and talks glowingly of a Bulldog future.

"This is the best class Dan Mullen has ever had," Adams said. "I think we have the chance to really do something. There is a lot of talent for sure. I am real good friends with Leo Lewis, Jamal Peters and Chris Stamps. I am close with all of those guys from the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star game, but especially those guys.

"I am excited about playing with them. I think we have talent all over the defense."

For now, Adams is working hard in the weight room and the class room to ensure he is where he needs to be in both areas when it comes time to report for duty in Starkville.

"I have just been working, man," Adams explained. "I am working hard and I am just ready to get started. I may be up there for some of the spring practices, but I am planning on going up there for the spring game for sure. I have a lot of things I am working on right now too, so I am not sure how much time I am going to have the next few weeks.

"I am happy with my decision and I am happy with the class we have coming in. I feel like we can do some big things together."
