Adams Impressed With TCU's Fight

Lewisville (TX) Hebron 2014 safety Jamal Adams liked his visit to TCU when they played host Texas Tech.

Lewisville (TX) Hebron defensive back Jamal Adams is already regarded as one of the top players in the country. Problem is, colleges still have to wait another 15 months before he'll be signing a national letter of intent.

Ranked as the nation's No. 3 safety for the 2014 class by FOX Sports Next, Adams already holds offers from Baylor, Iowa, Kentucky, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M and West Virginia.

The 6-foot, 185-pounder has already made several trips this fall and last Saturday he made the short drive from Lewisville down to Ft. Worth to watch TCU take on Texas Tech in a game that went three overtimes.

"For it being my first time to be at TCU's football it was a really great experience," he said. "The fans got after it, the atmosphere was great overall."

It was the first time Adams has been back on the TCU campus since his camp visit in June. Adams said the facilities matched up well with others he has seen up close.

"The facilities were real nice, they're some of the top ones I've seen," Adams said.

Although the Frogs came out on the losing end, Adams was most impressed with the way the team kept fighting until the very end. He says the loss to Texas Tech doesn't affect the Frogs one bit in his eyes.

"Overall they did a great job. They got after it and one thing I did like about them is they never quit, they never got down, it didn't matter what the score was and a miracle happened that sent it to overtime," he said. "They were all getting after it and trying to do their best on the field."

Adams had a chance to visit with TCU head coach Gary Patterson prior to the game and the message is very clear; the Frogs would love to have him.

"He's trying to get me to come up there. He said they need me up there because they'll have seniors at defensive back and I can come in and play as a true freshman," Adams said of his talk with Patterson.

The Frogs' uniforms for the Tech game drew a lot of compliments. You can add Adams to the list of people impressed with the look.

"They looked sharp, I liked the combo for the uniforms," he said.

Adams had originally planned to visit Oklahoma this Saturday to watch the Sooners take on Notre Dame in a game of two top ten teams. However, after a constant travel schedule to games every weekend, he'll likely stay at home this weekend to get some rest and simply watch what games he can on television.
