Quarterback or safety?
That's the question oftentimes posed in regards to South Forsyth High star Brian Adams.
But as it turns out, the 6-4, 211-pounder may not wind up at either at the next level. Not when you go to camp and run a 4.45-second 40-yard dash and display soft hands grabbing the football.
"I went to Kentucky's camp this past weekend," Adams told GAVSV.com. "They had me work on passing drills in the morning and then work with the wide receivers in the afternoon. I learned the routes and (Kentucky head) coach (Rich) Brooks saw me and he asked where my dad was. I told him and we walked over and he told us that they wanted to offer me a scholarship."
Adams' first official scholarship comes on the heels of a trip to Tennessee last Wednesday and Thursday where he impressed coaches there as well.
While in the camp's attendance in Knoxville, Tenn., Adams ran his impressive 40-yard dash time.
"The coaches at Tennessee were impressed like the coaches at Kentucky," Adams said. "Tennessee may offer, too, but I am not sure yet."
While Adams awaits word from Tennessee, he says that the Wildcats offer is definitely something he is strongly considering.
In fact, the next couple of weeks may go a long way in determining whether or not the Cumming native will soon call Lexington, Ky. his collegiate home.
"I am going to take the next two weeks to decide and I may or may not commit," Adams said. "I am still waiting to talk more with (Kentucky offensive coordinator and wide receivers) coach (Joker) Phillips. He would be my position coach and he is the next head coach there. I want to see more how he coaches his players."
While Adams contemplates whether or not to give the Wildcats a verbal pledge for their 2009 class, he is slated to attend Vanderbilt's camp this weekend.
Now that he has been approached by a major program to play wide receiver, Adams admits that it opens even more doors than before when he was just thought of as a quarterback or safety in college.
"This definitely helps that coaches like me as a receiver," Adams said. "I have always wanted to play college football at the Division I level and if playing receiver is how I accomplish that I will be very happy."
