Adams Works With Bulldog Coaches

North Pike quarterback Juwan Adams is a name that fans of Mississippi high school football are familiar with. Adams lit up opposing defenses last fall earning the interest of several college football programs. Mississippi State has shown some serious interest in Adams throughout the recruiting cycle. Adams was on campus today to work with the Mississippi State staff in hopes of earning an offer.

"Things went really good," Adams said of the Tuesday camp. "It was really about evaluation to see where I'm at among your peers and whatnot."

Coach Brian Johnson did most of the instruction during the day's drills. Adams believes he received some benefits from the activities.

"We worked a lot of footwork drills," Adams said. "I liked all of that and I can take that back home with me. I can work on most of that when I am at the house. This was all a good experience and I learned some things that will help me.

"I really like Coach Johnson. He's a young coach, so he can relate to us. He's very understanding. He's the kind of guy that gives you hope and he makes you realize you can do something great too."

Before heading for home, Adams had the chance to meet with Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen.

"Coach Mullen was talking to me about my feet," Adams said. "I was laying back on them and he wanted me to get up on them. He gave me some pointers here and there to make me a better player."

Adams has a handful of options in hand including, Louisville, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, Louisiana Tech, Memphis and Troy. The Bulldogs of Mississippi State have flirted early and often, but so far an offer has not been extended.

"I am not sure about an offer from them just yet," Adams said. "I am just waiting to hear something soon. I am still just keeping everybody even right now. I am going to ULL, ULM, Memphis and Louisville for camps and then I will see where things stand then."
