Jamal Adams is a five-star safety in 247Sports composite rankings from Hebron high school in Carrollton, Texas and is announcing his college decision between the LSU Tigers and Florida Gators on Thursday at the Under Armour All-American Game. One factor playing into his decision is the always popular ‘swag’ a program has.
“Just the energy up there, the swag,” Adams tells Thomas Goldkamp. “Big-time SEC school. It is a great program, they might get one of the top recruiting classes out of this year, so they always have plenty of players ready for a big run.”
The 6-0, 200-pound safety’s interest in LSU has taken on a life of its own in the past month since he took back-to-back visits to Baton Rogue, including driving through an ice storm after his flight was cancelled to get him to his official visit.
He is friends with LSU commit Ed Paris and fellow Texas defensive back Tony Brown and LSU target could give LSU a strong Texas flavor in the secondary.
My pick has been for LSU since Dec. 1 after LSU seized momentum from the Gators, the Texas Longhorns dropped out and the Ole Miss Rebels couldn’t gain enough ground to be a significant player.
