One of the top safety prospects on the East coast took his first official visit this past weekend. Butler High School (NC) star Jamar Adams went up to the University of Michigan to see the Wolverines 50-3 blowout victory over Houston.
Michigan was the first school to offer Adams, who did not commit on the trip.
“The visit was great,” said Adams. “I hung out with all of the players. They are all quality people. The coaches are nice. I got to sit down and talk to the coaches about some things.
“I was thinking about [committing], but I realize the importance of being patient. I want to be careful in what I do. I want to do my best in making my decision. Some guys commit to one school and sign with another. I’m not going to be like that.”
Adams will take more official visits, but he is not sure when he will make his decision. He is evaluating the schools who have shown interest in him before deciding which one(s) will get an official visit.
“I’m basically playing it by ear,” said Adams. “I don’t know which schools I will visit and am not sure when I want to take more visits. Some of the schools I’m considering visiting are Miami (FL), Florida State, Georgia, NC State, UNC, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.”
Following the second weekend of college football, Adams named a few favorites.
“Some of the favorites based on last weekend’s games would have to be Michigan of course, Florida State, Miami (FL), and Virginia Tech,” said Adams. “Like I said, though, I’m playing everything by ear and evaluating every school.”
Both Virginia Tech and Virginia have spoken with Adams since the silent period ended. Adams has a written offer from the Cavaliers, however things are little less clear where the Hokies are concerned.
“I spoke to Coach Groh last week and some of the defensive coaches,” said Adams. “We went over where I would fit in in their system. I also talked to the Coach Pearman from Virginia Tech. When I talked to him, he told me that I don’t need to worry about sending him my tape from the first two weeks of my senior year because they were so impressed with me. I did not think they had offered, but it sounded as if they had. I’ll ask him next time I talk to him.”
In two games, Adams has made two interceptions, 16 tackles, and one sack on defense. Both interceptions came in a loss to Independence in week one. Butler is 1-1...
