USC receivers coach Justin Stepp has another weapon to look forward to tutoring in the future after an announced commitment to the Gamecocks by CJ Adams (6-3 210) of Mableton, GA Sunday night. Adams made his official visit to Columbia over the weekend and going in he was favoring USC over Kentucky, Maryland and UAB.
Adams also visited USC for the spring game in April. He caught 54 passes last season for 936 yards and 11 touchdowns. He said in May Stepp likes him for his size and his big play potential.
“He likes my physicality, my ability to run and move and play-make,” Adams said. “I would fit good in their offense because all they do is throw the ball. I would fit great into the offense. And coach said I’d be more like an ATH, an all-around the field type of guy. Coach Stepp feels my physicality and my ability to be an athlete and play all over is very good.”
Adams also had offers from Duke, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Memphis, East Carolina, Connecticut, Louisville, Cincinnati, Purdue and USF among others. His only other official visit in June was to Maryland.
Adams is the tenth commitment for the Gamecocks 2023 class and the second wide receiver.
