During Will Muschamp’s football camp, the Gators hosted several top prospects from all over the country in Gainesville.
One of those prospects, Lewisville (Tx.) Hebron safety Jamal Adams, enjoyed his time in Gainesville with his father.
“Oh, I loved it man,” Adams said of the visit. “it’s just a great environment down there, it’s a good fit for me. They gave me a great little sheet of the opportunities I can have playing as a defensive back if I play there with coach (Will) Muschamp and coach T-Rob. Both of them said that they would use me like they did with Matt Elam. It’s just a great fit for me.”
Adams said that he really likes the facilities that Florida had to offer during his visit. Being able to finally sit down and meet the coaching staff was a big thing for Adams.
The 6-foot, 199-pound Adams does have a special connection to Florida in that his godfather is receiver coach Joker Phillips.
“If I decide to go to Florida, it’s not going to be based off him (Joker Phillips),” Adams said. “It will be based off of how much I like the school for me.”
With Adams being from Texas, some may think that distance may play a factor in his decision, but Adams says that isn’t the case.
“Really distance won’t play a factor man,” Adams said. “I can go to New York and play honestly. It’s based on the best opportunity for me and what fits me best as a player and as a person.”
Adams says his top schools are Florida, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Texas, Ohio State and Notre Dame right now but he says he is doing his homework on the schools.
“I’m going to separate those schools by praying about it every day,” Adams said. “Just thinking about what school is going to be the best fit for me and doing my research on them.”
