Louisiana cornerback Adam Sparks recaps Wake visit

Vanderbilt cornerback commit recaps his visit to Wake last weekend.

Dutchtown, Louisiana cornerback Adam Sparks committed to Vanderbilt in late June, but is still exploring his options. 

He visited Wake Forest last weekend, where he got to spend time with players and coaches as they prepare for the Military Bowl.

"It went good," Sparks told Demon Deacon Digest publisher Les Johns in a Twitter message. "I really enjoyed getting more details about the major I'm considering. The campus and facilities were great. I got to spent time with the head coach, defensive coordinator, the defensive backs coach  and the whole secondary."

Sparks wants to major in sports medicine. 

He enjoyed his time with the Wake secondary, and got to know redshirt freshman Jessie Bates, who exploded in his first season on the field for the Deacs. 

"I like the way they gel together on and off the field. He (Bates) was my host during the visit," Sparks said.  "Being able to have early playing time would great."

Sparks began making a name for himself with his performance in the New Orleans Regional Opening in April. It was there that he tested with an impressive shuttle time and camp-best vertical leap of 42.3 inches. 

Sparks is visiting Missouri this coming weekend, and is still verbally committed to Vanderbilt. He has no time frame in mind for any potential shifting of his decision.
