The highly touted in-state class of 2018 is getting weaker by the day. Friday night WR Jordyn Adams of Blythewood announced he will move in December to Greenville NC where his father, former USC defensive line coach Deke Adams, lives and coaches with East Carolina. Adams is the second major 2018 prospect this week to announce he would be leaving the state for his senior season. Earlier DE Xavier Thomas of Wilson revealed that he will enroll at IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL for his senior season.
Just as with Thomas, Adams cited family issues as the reason for the transfer and said the move will not impact his recruiting. In his case, the family had endured a season apart from their father and they felt it was time to change that.
“It was harder than I expected not having my dad at Friday night games for for him not getting to watch me in person,” Adams wrote on Twitter. “I’m not sure which HS (high school) I will be attending but whichever it is my family will all be together. My decision has no effect on my recruiting.”
Adams offers to this point include USC, Clemson, North Carolina, East Carolina, Ole Miss, Maryland, Kentucky, Virginia Tech and Missouri.
This season Adams played quarterback for the Bengals and passed for 2350 yards and 24 touchdowns and rushed for 793 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also is a major college baseball prospects.
