of Vienna (Ga.) Dooly County, the No. 1-rated defensive tackle in the nation according to many scouting services, hopes to visit the campus this week.


“I am going to try and go in there on Wednesday and stay until Friday,” Adams told TigerNet this week. “I just want to go up there and hang with the players and coaches, and get to know everybody a little better.”


Adams has considered Clemson one of his favorites out of over 40 offers, and said he still has the Tigers right near the top.


“It just feels like home there,” he said. “This is going to be my fourth or fifth visit, and I have loved every visit. This time I have some players I am going to hang with, and I am also going to text Sammy [Watkins] tonight to see if we can hang while I am there.”


Adams said that he has a great relationship with all of the Clemson coaches, and the message from the coaches is the same every time.


“They want me there. I know that,” he said. “They tell me they can see me playing right away.”


Adams said there are other things that he likes about Clemson.


“I like everything about the school, really,” he said. “There is a lot of tradition there with The Rock and running down the hill. I like the defense. Just everything.”


Adams is the second-rated prospect in the state of Georgia – behind Nkemdiche – but is the kind of defensive talent that can be a difference-maker for any school he attends.


He also told TigerNet that he wants to shoot for that number one ranking, currently held by Nkemdiche.



“I have the potential to be the best player,” he said. “I am working hard to be the best. I want to be, and I am not going to stop working hard until I am.”


As a junior, he recorded 84 tackles and 10 sacks and led the nation with 45 tackles for loss.


As a sophomore, he had 73 tackles and 15 sacks.
