When asked what he likes about Alabama, Adams had some interesting things to say. "Alabama is the best program in the country right now. They have a good tradition of putting defensive linemen into the NFL. I went to their game against last fall vs. LSU. It was the loudest game I've been to and probably the best one. Both teams played hard. I play tackle, but I think I could play defensive end in Alabama's defense."
Clemson was first to offer Adams. He has already visited Clemson. As a junior, he had 84 tackles, including 45 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. He was named the Region 4-A Player of the Year and made the AP all-state team and The Telegraph’s All-Middle Georgia Team. Adams finished his sophomore season with 17 tackles for loss and nine sacks.
