Big offseason for Adams

Jamal Adams, the nation's third-ranked safety out of Lewisville (Tx) Hebron, looks to visit three out-of-state programs.

For now, he is maintaining busy with school, track and individual training with former Mississippi State defensive back, now coach, Clay Mack.

"I'll be running all of the relays this spring - 4x1, 4x2, 4x4," listed Adams. "I'll also be working with Coach Mack on footwork, backpedal, coverage, really everything. I've been working with him since the eighth grade - our mindset is to be better every day. Never satisfied," he smiled.

It's why he is ranked one of the nation's best, and what several major BCS programs have fallen in love with. That, and his 6-foot, 190-pound muscled frame with 4.4 speed.

"Texas, OU, they come down a lot… Ole Miss, Ohio State, Texas Tech… they're all after me, talking to me a lot," Adams noted. "Really, it's just the start of the journey."

Invited to all junior days, Adams hopes to make Texas' Feb. 10 and one of Oklahoma's.

He plans to visit the majority of campuses later this spring - Florida, Ohio State and Ole Miss sitting atop the priority list.

"Ole Miss, I talk to Laquon and Christian Morgan a lot, they're saying Ole Miss is really on the rise… Florida is just a great school, Coach Muschamp is doing big things down there… So is Coach Urban Meyer up at Ohio State… I definitely want to check out those three."

And as the journey begins, Adams admits he will be leaning on his father, former Kentucky star running back, George Adams, who has "been there, done that."

"He tells me to find the school that'll give me the best opportunity for the next four years, because I do want to graduate college and get that degree. I'll really just be taking my time and not rushing it, making sure I see as many places as I can, weigh all options and make the best decision."
