Adams Drops By Kenan

Attending his second college game of the young football season, Josh Adams dropped by Kenan Stadium to experience North Carolina's contest with Big Ten power Wisconsin.

Adams, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound tailback from Cary (N.C.), learned that the Tar Heels' coaching staff is still very much interested in the Scout.com four-star recruit despite the verbal commitments of three potential tailbacks.

"They've told me they have good running backs coming in," said Adams. "It's my duty – if I get in there – to perform and that will determine whether I play running back – it's up to me."

Overall, Adams enjoyed his Chapel Hill stay and while he saw a Tar Heel loss, he was energized by the atmosphere.

"It was nice," said Adams. "Carolina had a lot of penalties and had a lot of plays called back. They had a good chance of winning, but the penalties hurt them a lot. There was a big crowd, and I was just excited to be there."

According to Adams, the visit has had little effect on his recruitment.

"I'm still wide open, but I like the team a lot," said Adams. "It was my team growing up, but I'm not going to let that enter into my decision."

Adams, who has been one of the more puzzling recruits of the class of 2006, claims he is still completely open to his 13 scholarship offering schools – Clemson, Duke, East Carolina, Georgia, LSU, Maryland, North Carolina, N.C. State, Ohio State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest.

"All thirteen are still up there at the top," said Adams. "I'm still looking at all my opportunities and trying to find out more information about each school and do what's best for me."

Even more interesting is Adams' method of going about his recruitment.

"Hopefully I can get to [taking my official visits], if not then I don't, but I'm going to try to," said Adams. "I'm going to let them come as they come. I'm not really planning anything out really – just play the game and go along with it."

In addition to last Saturday's game, Adams unofficially visited N.C. State when the Wolfpack hosted Virginia Tech. Although nothing else is planned, Adams hopes to attend a game at East Carolina and a few other ACC and SEC schools' games.
