The state of Texas is known for being the home to some of the most competitive high school football in the country, as well as churning out their football players to the top colleges across the country. Jamal Adams will be another one of those football players, as he is the second-best player in the state of Texas by ESPN and the fifth-best by Rivals.
Adams is a student-athlete at Hebron High School in Carrollton, Texas. The Hebron Hawks finished just 6-5 last season and lost in the first round of the playoffs by a score of 50-24 to Heritage High School. Adams, despite some of the defenses struggles, has been labeled a playmaker for the way he makes big hits on receivers and running backs alike. He is also very good at pass coverage, as he always seems to snag a few interceptions a season. All this even after being a being in his third season as a starter last season, and opposing offenses knowing not to throw his way, he seemed unavoidable and was still able to grab three picks.
Adams’ top choices have been said to be Texas, Texas A&M and Florida. He also, however, has not ruled out Notre Dame, Ohio State and Ole Miss. Being from Texas, many have stated they expect him to choose the Longhorns or the Aggies, but Florida is also looking like they could steal him from out-of-state. It would be interesting if he went to the other schools listed, as they all have proud defensive traditions and Adams would definitely boost any secondary he joined early in his college career.
It will be interesting to see what happens to Adams through his last year of high school.
