Adams Talks Spring Practice

All Saints athlete, Kendall Adams looks to play an even bigger role in the offense during the 2013 football season. Now tipping the scales at 6'1" and 197 pounds, Adams looks primed for a breakout season.

Kendall Adams was surrounded by talent during the 2012 State championship run last season. With weapons on offense like TCU signee Charlie Reid and Jake Johnson, Adams found himself as the third option for another TCU commit, Foster Sawyer. Fast forward to spring practice and things have changed.

After pulling in 20 receptions for 263 yards and 4 touchdowns, Adams is prepared to be Sawyer's "go to" receiver in 2013. HornedFrogBlitz.com caught up with the talented prospect to get the latest after completing the first day of spring drills.

"It was great to get back out here on the field again" said Adams. "I'm moving to a new position and a lot of other guys are switching positions because we have a lot of new guys."

"The main thing right now is we're just trying to get adjusted and trying to play fast."

Playing at 185 pounds in 2012, Adams looked like a prospect that had some potential. As it sits today, he looks like a Big 12 caliber athlete, tipping the scales at nearly 200 pounds. With a target weight of 200-205 pounds for the 2013 season, Adams is out to prove that he can play with the best players in the country.

Sounding like a player that has embraced a leadership role with the team, Adams says he and his teammates can ill afford to rest on last season's accomplishments.

"Of course our goal is to repeat but we don't want to talk about last year" he said. "If we talk about last year, and think about last year, then we won't work as hard in the summer during off season to get better."

"Everyone's going to be gunning for us and we have to be ready."

Turning our attention to recruiting, Adams mentioned that he currently holds one offer from Rice. With more schools coming into the picture, the Saints' star in the making wants to turn some heads and earn a few offers in the process.

"I have the one offer from Rice but I'm hearing from Houston, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and some Ivy League schools Yale and Harvard."

"I'm also hearing from Florida State and Miami a little bit."

With a former teammate signing with TCU and his current quarterback committed to TCU, Adams made it clear that he would be interested if TCU came calling.

"I went to their spring practice about a month ago but that was the last time I've had any contact with them" he said. "If they started talking to me though, I would definitely be interested."

"I would love to play in the Big 12 but I also like the city of Houston and both Rice and Houston are there so that would be good too."

With TCU looking for both receivers and safeties in this class, don't be surprised if the Horned Frogs come in for a closer look as the process rolls along. Stay logged on with us and make sure you don't miss any of our updates with Adams along the way.
