What does Adams say?

As one of the top uncommitted prospects in the country, Dooly County defensive tackle Montravius Adams will likely see the intensity of his recruitment increase over the next couple of months.

As soon as the dead period ends on January 4, the next 30 days will be filled with unofficial visits and in-home visits, and when he isn't doing either of those, the South Georgia standout will be doing his best to sort out his recruitment in his own mind.

"I am going to visit Florida right after the Under Armour game in early January," said Adams. "Then I am visiting Clemson on January 11. Then Alabama that next weekend (January 18) and then Georgia on January 25. I haven't decided on that last visit, then I will decide on Signing Day."

Adams' says that his mother, Debbie Young, will take each of those official visits with him, and that both of them will have things that they are looking when preparing to choose a school.

"I'm looking to just get to the school and see how I fit," he said. "I want to spend time with the coaches and let my mom spend time with the coaches to see how she likes the school and how she likes the coaching staff."News came down on Thursday night that Georgia, one of the schools Adams is considering heavily, would be losing their defensive line coach, Rodney Garner, to Auburn.

Less than 24 hours after Garner, who was heavily involved in Adams' recruitment for UGA, made the move, Adams is still trying to fully process the news and decide how it affects his decision making in the future.

"I've thinking about it today and I know I'm going to take an official to Georgia," said Adams. "I might take my last official to Auburn, but I haven't made up my mind about that."

But does Georgia's defensive line coach vacancy negatively affect the Bulldogs chances for Adams signature at this time?

The five-star defensive end says no.

"No it doesn't hurt them with me, but I am looking to see who comes in as the new defensive line coach there," said Adams. "I will be looking for that."

If Adam's were making a hire for a defensive line coach, he has a good idea of the kind of guy he would pursue.

"A guy who has a tradition of putting defensive linemen in the league (NFL), and making them great not only on the field but off the field," said Adams.

Adams' also feels that Garner's move from Georgia to Auburn will help the Tigers' defense right away.

"I think Auburn is getting a great coach," he said. "Their defensive line will be better next year. Georgia is losing a pretty good coach."
