Since indicating he will make more official visits, Butler (NC) safety Jamar Adams has been able to finalize two of those trips – UNC for the weekend of January 10th and Florida State for the weekend of January 24th.

For the remaining two official visits (he has made one official to Michigan already), Adams is eyeing three schools.

“Well, I was supposed to go to UCLA on January 16th but my mentor who was supposed to go with me probably can’t go,” Adams said. “My mom doesn’t want me going to UCLA by myself, so I might go to South Carolina on that weekend. I might go to UCLA on January 31st now, but I might go to Virginia Tech as well. I’m not sure yet which one I will go to. It’s between those three for the final two visits. I’ll probably end up taking all five.”

Adams said “yes, I do” when asked if he still considers himself a Michigan commitment. The school with maybe the best chance of landing him if he doesn’t remain with Michigan may be Florida State. The ‘Noles have extended a scholarship offer, and he seemed excited about his trip to Tallahassee in January.

“Trimaine [Goddard, who Adams spent a lot of time with at the Shrine Bowl] and I and some other guys were talking about Florida State and what we liked about them,” Adams said. “Florida State said they are really excited about having me, Trimaine, and Jamaal [Edwards] down there on the same weekend.”

In addition to spending a lot of time with Trimaine Goddard, Adams also spoke with Rod Council as well. It appears the Hokies have another recruiter in the state of North Carolina.

“Rod was talking to me like, ‘yeah you need to take an official visit to Virginia Tech man. We could have a great defensive backfield down there,’” Adams said. “Virginia Tech just told me to only take an official visit down there if I was really considering them. They said I have an offer if I want one.”

The Hokies currently appear to be a long shot for Adams, though things could change quickly if he sets an official visit. If he doesn’t choose Michigan, Florida State might be the next choice.


Shrine Bowl

Adams impressed college and high school coaches alike during the Shrine Bowl last week.

“A lot of the coaches there were telling me I was one of the best on the field,” Adams said.
