Rutgers Commit Adams Has Two More Visits

Palm Beach Gardens (Fla.) Dwyer three-star cornerback Jarius Adams remains committed to Rutgers after a Monday in-home visit with the staff, but has two more official visits before a final decision. After new Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh offered last week, Adams spoke with Scout for the latest on his recruitment.

After a productive meeting Monday night with defensive coordinator Joe Rossi, Palm Beach Gardens (Fla.) Dwyer cornerback Jarius Adams remains committed to Rutgers.

Adams told Scout that the Scarlet Knights stressed their interest in his commitment during an in-home visit.

“It went very well,” Adams said. “We had a great talk. We went over a bunch of things about my recruitment. He went back over what’s going on right now, what he’s doing. He talked about different schools recruiting me, and wanted to make sure the commitment was still there. I told him it was.”

Adams earned a Rutgers offer during a summer visit to campus, and committed at the end of July. He returns to Piscataway, N.J., for the first time since his commitment this weekend for his third official visit.

“There’s great coaches and a great program and things like that,” Adams said. “ … It’s very important [to get back to Rutgers] because I didn’t get to see as much when I first went down in the summer. I just want to check it out again. My family thought it would be a great visit. My mom, she’s really excited.”

Michigan remains in Adams’ visit plans heading into National Signing Day after head coach Jim Harbaugh extended an offer.

“It’s exciting because they’re a team I kind of grew up liking,” Adams said. “I feel like I want to check out a school that I’ve liked for so long. It’s pretty big.”

Harbaugh’s impressive NFL resume doesn’t hurt either, Adams said.

“He’s a great coach, you can pretty much tell that by him taking a team to the Super Bowl one year and then the next year going into the NFC Championship Game,” Adams said. “I’m definitely impressed. He’s straightforward. He’s going to be a great coach in the Big Ten.”

Both Wisconsin and Ohio State recently expressed interest in Adams and could be by his school this week to discuss offers, Adams said. Adams previously took official visits to both Middle Tennessee State and FAU.
