Recruiting Scene: As with several of NC State's commitments, Tony Adams picked the Wolfpack after earning an offer at the team's summer camp. He committed prior to camping at several other schools.
Why NC State? "It's a great school with strong academics and a very good football program in the ACC. Plus, I had a great vibe with the coaches. They were awesome at camp... fun to be around. It made the decision easy for me."
Picked NC State Over: Interest From North Carolina, South Carolina, Duke, and Wake Forest
Scouting Report: "Tony is a technician. He studies himself, he watches film on himself, and he always asks questions. He's a very smart kid academically. He brings that intelligence to the field by asking ‘What can I do to do this?' ‘How can I get better at this?'… He has very good hands, very good footwork, and the speed of the game isn't too much for him. He's getting stronger in the weight room everyday." – Independence head coach Joe Evans
