Jawanza Adams has been working hard this summer. The 5-foot-10, 177-pound cornerback recently had a strong performance at Virginia Tech’s camp.
“I feel like I did pretty well,” said Jawanza Adams. “There was a lot of great competition up there. Coach (Torrian) Gray said I had good technique and that I performed very well. Then, Coach Bud Foster said that I was a great athlete. Virginia Tech is recruiting me the hardest.”
Adams is also attracting interest from a couple other schools.
“I am also hearing from Clemson, North Carolina, and Vanderbilt,” he said.
The 2014 prospect, who camped at Clemson earlier this summer, feels that he could be close to getting his first scholarship offer.
“I would say Virginia Tech is probably the closest to offering, and then Clemson may be second,” said Adams.
The Woodmont standout is done with visits this summer, but plans to take some trips this fall.
“I am definitely trying to check out Blacksburg (Virginia Tech) and Clemson,” Adams said. “I am also going to try to go to some more ACC schools – North Carolina, Duke, and Wake Forest.”
Adams, who has been a starter on the varsity since his freshman season, knows he will play a larger role for his team this fall.
“I think I am going to be asked to do a lot more this season since we have a whole new coaching staff,” he said. “I will probably play offense this year too – probably wide receiver. My freshman and sophomore year, I only played defense.”
With his third varsity campaign quickly approaching, Adams has high goals for his upcoming season.
“As a team, I want to make the playoffs,” said Adams. “Individually, I am trying to make all-state and all-region. I also want to pick up my first scholarship offer.”
Last season, Adams had 43 tackles, four pass breakups, and two interceptions. He bench presses 215 pounds, squats 365, and recently ran a 4.55-second 40-yard dash at Virginia Tech.
