It has been nearly two months since Oaks Christian (CA) high school running back Ishmael Adams was offered by SMU and California recruiter Adrian Klemm. Since, he has picked up a new offer and gained interest from other schools.
"I am excited about it. They make great defensive backs and pro athletes. It could be a possibility of a school I would like to go to."
With the addition of Miami and his newest offer, the list of schools recruiting him is impressive. So far, Arizona State, Auburn, Colorado, Florida, Georgia Tech, Miami, Indiana, Nebraska, Oregon, UCLA, USC, Vanderbilt, Washington, and SMU have all pursued him.
"It's just been a blessing. I try to talk to come to all the schools that came and visited me this fall," said Adams. "Right now, I don't have any that standout."
"As far as junior days, I'm going to talk with my family and figure out what we have going on. See where I can go, but I will be going to some."
A Scout.com 3-star prospect in the class of 2012, Adams started track today. Something that he hopes will pay off next football season.
"I want to work on my speed and my quickness. I'm looking to get faster in and out of my breaks."
Adams is currently working on his junior highlights and plans to have them done in the next few weeks. He is currently 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds. Adams plays on Keyshawn Johnson and Brian Kelly's 1925 All-Star Elite team.
He previously told PonyStampede.com in an interview: "I would have never thought my first offer would be from SMU. I didn't know much about them until tonight when I talked with Coach Klemm. It sounds like a great coaching staff with a lot of pro experience."
