Adams Takes in UT Camp

Top Texas safety target Jamal Adams took in Texas's camp on Sunday. talked with him about his experience.

"It was great coming down here, hanging with the guys, hanging with Quandre [Diggs] and all them, hanging with Lorenzo [Joe] and Jerrod [Heard]. I was really just having a good time, just chilling and watching them play."

Another guy that Adams was able to watch play was 2014 Red Oak cornerback Garrett Davis. Adams is familiar with Davis in that both players train with Quick Twitch trainer Clay Mack. Davis came out and impressed the Texas staff by running well, then competing hard against the best receivers the camp had to offer.

"It was great to see him show out," Adams said. "He was really just working hard and competing."

A competitive nature is something Adams can relate to. He's often considered one of the most competitive players in the 2014 class, a reputation he's earned by consistently challenging the best from across the state and the country. And that's something that he thinks helps him get along with Texas defensive backs coach Duane Akina.

"I definitely have a great relationship with Coach Akina … great guy, great coach," Adams said. "He always competes, and I'm a competitor. So that's why we connect."

Adams doesn't typically talk much about his recruiting, largely because he wants to make the decision privately, with without much fanfare about him narrowing or trimming his list. And when he commits, he wants that to be the end of the recruiting process.

"I have it in my mind where I'm thinking about going, and the top three or five right now," Adams said. "I'm keeping it to myself and my family. So I'm really just taking my time with everything and making sure it's the right fit."

So what's he looking for?

"Just the best fit for me," Adams said. "Academics is always going to be there [as a factor]. Just the best opportunity for me as a freshman and the best fit."
