La CB Adam Sparks Recaps Missouri Visit

Vanderbilt commitment Adam Sparks took an official visit to Missouri last weekend.

Louisiana Class of 2017 cornerback Adam Sparks has a big decision to make and it could be a more difficult decision following a recent official visit. 

Sparks, a 6-foot, 173-pound three-star prospect from Dutchtown High School in Geismar, La., committed to Vanderbilt in late June but has continued to attract interest from schools. He recently took official visits to both Wake Forest and Missouri

“Still in discussion with my parents about my options,” Sparks said in a message via Twitter. “Big decision so I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing for me.”

Sparks said the visit to Missouri, this past weekend, was good and he was able to learn more about the school and the team. 

What were the highlights?

“Having time to spend with the players and getting to know them and the environment,” Sparks said. “Also finding out more about my major and the support I will be getting.”

Missouri graduated both of its starting cornerbacks, Aarion Penton and John Gibson, and is looking to bring in two or three in this recruiting class. 

Terry Petry, a cornerback from Ridge Point High School in Missouri City, Texas, recently flipped from Houston to Missouri. In addition to Sparks, junior college cornerback Octavious Morgan also took a recent official visit to Mizzou.

The Tigers are obviously interested in Sparks and the Louisiana high school senior will have a difficult decision to make before Signing Day in a few weeks.
