Vienna (Ga.) Dooly County defensive tackle Montravius Adams has kept his recruiting quiet for much of the process but that will change over the next month or so.
Starting Sunday the 6-foot-3, 290-pound Adams will leave Vienna to head to Orlando to compete in the Under Armour All-American Game.
“I head to Atlanta (Sunday) afternoon to catch my flight down to Orlando,” Adams said. “It’s going to be a fun experience and I get to see how I match up with the other top players. It’s going to be good competing with those guys because I haven’t seen a one-on-one match up since the Alabama camp last summer.
“I’m looking forward to that but I think by the end of the week they will be double teaming me.”
Adams is athletic for his size and he says he expects to play both defensive tackle and defensive end while in Orlando to show coaches he is athletic enough to play both.
Following his time in Orlando, Adams will embark on taking his five official visits, with all take place in the month of January.
“I know of four of my officials right now,” Adams said. “First up is Florida followed by Clemson, Alabama, Georgia and then possibly Auburn for my fifth and final official visit.”
While he has taken an unofficial visit to Florida for the LSU game in October, he and his mother were not able to spend as much time as they would have liked in Gainesville.
“I want to see how I bond with the coaches and see how I get along with them,” Adams said. “I want to see the players and others around the program to see how they like Florida and how the coaches treat them and stuff. I also want to see how my mom likes them all as she didn’t really get to spend much time with them the last time we were there.”
One of the key factors playing in Florida’s favor is Adams’ relationship with defensive line coach Bryant Young.
“I have a great relationship with coach Young,” Adams said. “He has already accomplished everything I want to accomplish, like playing in the league and possibly being a hall of famer.
“I really think he can help me get to be the kind of player he was and help me accomplish all of the goal I have set for myself.”
Adams plans to wait until national signing day to sign and the main factor for him is the place that he feels at home.
