Adams continues to impress

Lewisville (TX) Hebron safety Jamal Adams is one of the top prospects to watch from the 2014 class.

It doesn't take long for Lewisville (TX) Hebron safety Jamal Adams to make an impression. One look at his ability to cover and change directions and his leadership ability, it's quickly learned that Adams' has the ingredients of a major talent. He comes from good bloodlines as well, his father George was a former first round pick in the NFL Draft out of Kentucky.

The younger Adams has already landed on the radar of programs nationwide and has four offers already in the fold, including TCU. At the Frogs' June 8th camp it was apparent early on that his style of play would transition well into Gary Patterson's scheme on defense and Adams left the camp earning his fourth offer.

In addition to his offer from TCU, Adams holds offers from Kentucky, West Virginia and Baylor. Others continue to show him interest and he plans to visit Alabama next month for a camp.

"Yes, I'm just waiting to go to Alabama's camp in July and see how everything flows out," Adams said. "I've been getting a couple of calls that are calling my dad; he's been talking to them, that's about it."

Adams put on a show at the TCU camp easily earning the recognition of several coaches including the head coach. When an offer was extended, it didn't catch Adams off guard mainly because he knew he put in the work to deserve one.

"Man, it was and it wasn't (a surprise)," Adams said. "I was going in there to try to do my best and I tried to get the offer. That's my main goal and I achieved it."

One solid connection to TCU is Hebron coach Brian Brazil, who played for the Frogs under Jim Wacker in the 80's. Adams says his coach jokingly asks him if he has a serious interest in the Frogs.

"He loves it, he even told me yesterday, ‘are you pulling my leg, you really like TCU' and I was like yeah coach I really do like TCU," Adams said of his talks with Brazil. "I like their campus, I really haven't toured all of it and I like the coaches, they're all cool. The head coach is real, real cool and he shows a lot of love for the players."

Is TCU a place he will visit this season to watch a game?

"For sure, I'm definitely going to check out a couple of games," he said.

With his trip planned for Alabama next month, Adams is unsure if an offer will be extended but he knows the Tide have been watching him closely.

"I'm going to Alabama in July, that's the only official college camp I'm going to this summer," Adams said. "It's a possibility (for an offer), they came down and checked me out the first day of spring practice and watched film on me."
