Adams Familiar with Chapel Hill

Terry Adams of Elkin (N.C.) has become quite an expert – and an admirer – of North Carolina's Kenan Stadium. Unlike most UNC targets, the 5-foot-11, 215-pound jumbo athlete has not only witnessed a game from the stands, but has also participated in one on the field.

"I think Carolina has a beautiful stadium," said Adams. "I played there my freshman year in the [NCHSAA 1A] State Championship game, and I thought it was a good experience and a nice stadium."

By attending both of the Tar Heels' junior days this spring, Adams furthered his wisdom of the campus and football program, and also developed a solid relationship with the coaching staff.

"It's a real nice school," said Adams. "Coach [John] Bunting is a real nice man; I think well of him. I like Coach [Tommy] Thigpen, Coach [Marvin] Sanders – I like the whole coaching staff; the coaching staff is real nice."

Adams, whose lone offer was extended by N.C. State, would like to see a tender from the Tar Heels' coaching staff. Although a UNC offer would bolster North Carolina's chances, Adams admits he is far from committing to any school and currently doesn't claim any favorites.

Although he is being recruited for linebacker by the UNC coaching staff, Adams is a four-year starter on the defensive line for Elkin where he received All-State honors last season after accumulating 149 tackles and 23 sacks. He also forced three fumbles and recorded two defensive touchdowns.

Adams is still in the process of mapping out his summer camping schedule, but believes another trip to Chapel Hill for the Tar Heels' camp is very likely.
