Will Adams: Going Campin'

Summer camps are one of the best ways to raise a prospects stock and South Grand Prairie's Will Adams knows this. In fact, the '09 wide receiver has already camped at almost every Division I school within the state of Texas this summer. Adams was impressed during each and every stop, but one school stood out more than the others.

Will Adams has camped at Texas, Texas A&M, UTEP, Houston, TCU, North Texas and a National Underclassmen camp this summer. Which one was he most impressed with?

"Really, Texas," replied Adams. "I had a great time down there. They have a friendly coach, Mack Brown. I got to shake his hand and take two photos with him. Everyone tells me that he is a real nice coach and that he doesn't lie to you."

Adams has been able to get a feel for many of the in-state schools over the summer, but two out-of-state schools are also high on his list.

"I really like Miami and LSU. Miami always has great players come out. They always have a lot of speed. They are also a private school, so you can get a great education down there," Adams said. "With LSU, I feel like they are rising on the map. They just had J'Marcus Russell come out."

The 5-foot-11, 178-pound Adams saw limited playing time on the offensive side of the ball as a sophomore. He finished the year with three catches for 49 yards. He also saw valuable time on special teams, blocking two punts. Adams is looking forward to his junior season where he is expected to start at wide receiver.

"I will be starting this year," Adams said. "I hope to play great, and I hope we make it to the playoffs and do well."

Adams also talked about his strengths and weaknesses on the football field.

"My hands," Adams said when asked about his strengths. "I feel like I can catch anything that is thrown to me on the field.

"I'd like to work on my speed and strength," Adams added. "The last time we ran 40's, I ran a 4.58."
