After taking an unofficial to TCU, Adcock has since been back to Fort Worth and also made appearances at A&M, Kansas, and Iowa State. "At TCU they play smash mouth football. They aren't always the biggest or fastest, but they don't ever seem to quit. That was one thing that stood out to me about TCU."

Dallas Christian 2010 offensive tackle Chris Adcock has been busy. After taking an unofficial to TCU, Adcock has since been back to Fort Worth and also made appearances at A&M, Kansas, and Iowa State.

"I've visited Texas A&M, Iowa St., Kansas, and TCU this season. I don't know if I could rank them at this point," stated Adcock to BigPurpleNation.com. "All the schools have great things to offer, but they're all different. So far I have been most impressed with A&M, Kansas, and TCU, but I remain interested in all of the schools currently recruiting me."


TCU- "TCU is close to home so I've been able to see a few of their games. At TCU they play smash mouth football. They aren't always the biggest or fastest, but they don't ever seem to quit. That was one thing that stood out to me about TCU."

A&M- "A&M has all of the great tradition at their school, which is amazing to experience in person. The coaches watched my film ahead of time and made me feel that they really know me as a player. It is pretty cool when they know your name with out reading your name tag."

Iowa State- "Iowa St. is similar to A&M in the fact that people up there are football crazy. We went and they sell parking on the front lawn of their campus buildings. You're in this small town and all the sudden there are 50,000 people in the stadium. I was also impressed by their academic support for student-athletes."

Kansas- "Kansas had a great campus and a great game atmosphere. The people there were all very friendly. They also had some of the newest facilities that I have seen. The coaches spent the most time with the recruits, which really makes it worth the trip."


With all four schools plus Arizona and Arkansas showing interest, Adcock will have a very busy next couple of months.

"I wish I knew if anyone was close to giving me an offer. A&M, Kansas, and TCU have shown increased interest by watching and commenting on of my film, which is encouraging," said Adcock.

After receiving 1st All TAPPS Division II District II team honors last year, the recognition just keeps coming for Adcock. The National Underclassmen Combine ranked the junior as their 9th best O-lineman nationally.

Dallas Christian finished the regular season 10-0 (6-0) and is currently ranked #1 in TAPPS. After achieving the goal of back-to-back undefeated district championships, The Chargers are now focused on winning a State Championship.

"I have been most happy with the way our team has come together as a family and we are playing and winning as a family," said Adcock. "To win state, our team needs to work on staying focused on the road and playing our game. Last year we struggled a little with these; however, I believe we have got them figured out and will take it with us through the playoffs."

Adcock anchors a Dallas Christian offensive line that is putting up godly numbers. The Chargers are averaging 51 points a game with a total of 475-yards a game. Quarterback and D-1 prospect Corey Brooks, has thrown for 16 touchdowns and nearly 1400-yards in 10 contests.

The Chargers have a great passing quarterback, but the bread of butter for the offense is the run game. Currently Dallas Christian is averaging 281-yards a game and a 7.9 yards per carry average.

"I feel I'm a better o-lineman when it comes to the run because that's what I've always done since middle school," sated Adcock. "In the run block you can be very aggressive and use your strength and aggression to flatten people. I feel that I'm strong in pass blocking as well, but run-blocks just seem to be more natural for me."

The offensive tackle would like to major in Pre-Med or engineering in college. Currently he has a 4.0 GPA and is part of the National Honor Society. His hobbies include: fishing, hunting, golfing, snowboarding, paintball, reading, and doing flips off diving boards
