Montravius Adams Taking His Time: Will He Be A Tiger?

Adams is in no hurry to decide.

Defensive tackle Montravius Adams is one of the best recruits in the country regardless of position. Out of Vienna (Ga.) Dooly County, the big man has incredible quickness for someone of his size (6'3, 290 pounds). One thing that Adams isn't so quick about, however, is naming his top schools. He had some interesting thoughts in a recent video interview.

"I just ain't ready yet," Adams said when asked why he won't name an official top six until after his senior season.

Adams visited Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Auburn, Clemson and Michigan State over the summer. While he won't name a top six, it's safe to assume that those schools stand out to him.

What is it about those schools? "Family, tradition and the need for defensive linemen," Adams said. "The coaches were great and just hanging out with the players."

Clemson was the first to offer Adams, and has always been a favorite of his.

"One thing I love is the hill. There's just something about it I love," Adams said, referencing the hill down which Clemson runs to enter its stadium on gameday.

Another program with a Tiger mascot is also high on his list.

"They got a great tradition of defensive linemen like Nick Fairley. I'd like to come in an take his place and do what he did," Adams said of Auburn.

Will Adams be a Tiger come National Signing Day? We'll just have to wait and see.

Here's the full video.
