Elite '09 Receiver Visits Storrs

Joshua Adams, one of the nations' top wide receiver prospects from the Class of 2009 recently transferred schools from Cambridge Rindge & Latin in Cambridge, Mass., to Cheshire Academy in Cheshire, Conn., due to academic reasons. Adams also took an unofficial visit to Connecticut this weekend to check out the facilities, so we talked to him about both subjects.

Wide receiver Joshua Adams will now be attending Cheshire Academy for the rest of his high school days which will finish at the end of next fall as he is already on schedule to graduate early. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound athlete has written scholarship offers from Boston College, Iowa, Nebraska, North Carolina, Rutgers and Stanford and could be getting another one soon from Connecticut.

"I just transferred to Cheshire Academy recently," Adams stated. "The move was simply for academic purposes. My family and I feel like this is a better academic opportunity for me, so I made the switch and will finish high school here."

As for his trip to Connecticut on Sunday…

"My trip to Connecticut went really well," Adams explained. "The facilities were absolutely amazing and I have never seen anything like the weight room they have there. They had these magnetic weights which were really cool and then upstairs they had incline machines that you could add or remove weight from just by pressing a button. There were also computers monitoring everything you do to help you with your workout."

"I met with Coach (Matt Cersosimo) and one of the offensive line coaches who were both cool guys and they said they liked my film and wanted to offer me in writing, but Head Coach Randy Edsall hadn't watched my film yet, so they had to wait to do that until he could watch me play," Adams added. "I didn't get to meet him this weekend, but I am going back over there on Saturday for a basketball game and will meet with him then."

Things have been going well in recruiting and on the combine trail for Adams as well.

"I was named the Offensive MVP of the All-American Combine in San Antonio and was told I will be playing in the game next year," Adams said. "They told me I was the first player selected which I thought was really cool. As for recruiting, I still have all the same written offers, but I'm hearing from USC, UCLA and Notre Dame a lot recently."
