Who knows. Anyway it's over now !!

He was playing all three schools. He was telling all...


Posted: Feb 8, 2013 12:29 PM
 

that he was going to each. He handled himself very well in the process. He kept all three doors wide open until the bitter end. Clearly he was an oversign for all schools, but you can't blame him for not taking any chances and keeping all options wide open until the very end.


Cause he is a MORON!!!!

So you like to wish players who don't choose Clemson well but feel free to rip those that do choose to play for Clemson - interesting logic.

Attempting to be objective I'd suggest that his having turned toward us in the first place was media hype.

His relationship with Carl Lawson affected that decision some no doubt and those two did mention they would like to play together, jus went to the wrong Tigers, that we beat the past two seasons and should have whipped them three years ago, did it everywhere but the scoreboard!


Even other recruits said he was Clemson bound. Who knows?***

Distance from is home/mom was a big factor plus he and Carl Lawson had become friends so he felt more comfortable at Auburn. If Lawson had flipped to CU then Adams would have committed also.


Distance was my perception too...


Posted: Feb 8, 2013 1:45 PM
 

Anyone who's been to that part of Georgia knows the small town feel. 10-15 mile drives are considered all-day journeys.

I imagine he and his Mom had trouble wrapping their head around the trek up I-75/85 to Clemson.

Auburn is closer and it feels more like south GA.

badge-donor-05yr.jpg

Seems like he got some pressure at the end put...


Posted: Feb 8, 2013 12:43 PM
 

on him by Auburn. I think he got caught up in the SEC hype and in the chance to play with Lawson. Im thinking he was convinced also that Auburn was 'staying close to home' and Clemson was 'moving away from home' based on one of his comments. Its not like Clemson is that much further.

Oh well, its over now.

Simple, SEC and his good friend, Lawson.

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpgmilitary_donation.jpg

I never considered him in for Clemson


Posted: Feb 8, 2013 12:49 PM
 

I wish him well.


Lawson

I think if Lawson was gung-ho on Clemson, Mt Adams would have followed.

Bummer.

He was an Auburn lean from the get go and our roster

and Clemson at various points during the last 8 months. I have heard Lawson was involved in getting him money (same with Alexander) but that isn't true.

Rodney Garner was the difference with Adams; he liked him all along. Same with Lawson.

You really only need 5 for a good rotation. We got 6

Posted: Feb 8, 2013 1:18 PM
 

Adams was not a Need but rather a Want. Alexander was much much more important for our team then Adams was. I'm not 100% sure that he would have started from day one. Alexander is all but assured a starting spot opposite Breeland next year as long as he doesn't get injured.


Re: You really only need 5 for a good rotation. We got 6

We get martin jenkins back, he was our best corner. I would like to see us now move breeland to safety with the influx we have at corner and with the development of gary peters. Breeland would be a great safety IMO


Re: Jarrett, Williams, and Reader say we don't need him***


Posted: Feb 8, 2013 1:49 PM
 

Let's be realistic, he was a big loss. However, I never really bought into the idea that he was a lean to Clemson. Never felt that we were really in it for Lawson. I wish them well.


Re: Jarrett, Williams, and Reader say we don't need him***


Posted: Feb 9, 2013 12:26 AM
 

I wouldnt say we dont need him...he isnt someone we would need to play right away nxt yr but would still be nice to have him in the pipeline


Same reason Lawson switched back to Auburn in the end

They've made an art form of paying off parents as well as "handlers".

CA$H, get the money, dollar dollar bill$, y'all.

No way true academics, an extra hourish drive from mums home, or a beaten AU brand was, what is.

Handle that?

It was a bit straange that his father went alone to talk to Auburn. Cam's Dad worked out a pretty good deal also.

It seems that CU is pretty deep at DT already. However, I heard he played some at the DE position also.


He actually

grew up an auburn fan and auburn hiring ellis and garner just made it easier for him to pick them in the end...But this was a very tight win for auburn


Kudos

Regardless. I'm very impressed by Adams. He showed a ton of maturity in the way he handled the whole recruitment process. I wish he was ours but can't help but wish a man of his caliber the best. He would have fit in well with our program. Good luck mont. we wish you well. A transfer is still welcome hahah.

Auburn is closer to Mom.


maybe you should keep up with the board


Posted: Feb 14, 2013 10:51 AM
 

this was discussed ad infinitum, with front page articles.

Oh, and the Japs bombed Pearl H.


If keeping up with the board means trolling for week old

posts and making snarky replies, I'll leave that to those with more time on their hands than me.

But like 74 Tiger, I'd love to know what went on behind the scenes at the last minute. This unnamed (as far as I know) handler/mentor seemed to come out of nowhere to blind side our coaching staff.

It's a simple question. Can anyone seriously tell us who the the last minute handler/mentor was? I asked this before and I suspect someone may have identified them on clemson.rivals I'm not paying for access currently though and I don't care enough to pay for it. So if anyone does please just humor us and tell us. Thanks in advance.
