After spending Saturday at Notre Dame, Josh Adams is even more excited than ever to kick off his career with the Irish.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound running back from Warrington, Pa., signed with the Irish in February and returned to South Bend last weekend to watch the Blue-Gold Game.

“It was good,” Adams said. “It was real fun. Me and my family had a lot of fun. We drove in on Friday like at 7 p.m. and checked into the hotel and rested up a little bit.”

Adams spent Friday night in the dorms with his future teammates.

He woke up early Saturday and spent most of the morning at the practice facility watching Notre Dame’s players and coaches prepare for their final day of spring drills, which concluded with the defense’s 36-34 win in the 86th annual scrimmage.

“It looked good,” Adams said of the game. “It’s good to see the guys you’re going to be playing with out there doing their thing and I had fun watching them. I thought everything went good.”

Adams was impressed with Notre Dame’s ability to run the football and make big plays on offense.

He was also thrilled to finally meet new running backs coach Autry Denson.

“I’ve been talking to him on the phone but when I went down there was the first time meeting him in person,” he said. “He’s a great guy and an even better coach. I’m just excited to get it going and to get up there to put the work in.”

In talking with Denson, Adams learned more about his future coach and the expectations he’ll have to meet.

“It’s just going out there and working hard to get everybody better,” Adams said. “He cares as much about you as a person as he does as a player. We’re just going to go out there and have some fun.”

Adams also spent time with several other members of Notre Dame’s recruiting class of 2015.

“There was about 10 of us there,” he said. “I eventually saw all of them when the game was going on. It was good seeing them and talking to them a little bit.”

Adams is scheduled to arrive in South Bend on June 13.

“Until then, I’m just going to put the work in and try to prepare myself for when I get up there,” he said. ranked Adams as a four-star athlete and the 199th best prospect overall. Top Stories
