Georgia Tech has had a lot of success recruiting out of Sandy Creek High School over the years, reeling in talents such as NFL Pro Bowl WR Calvin Johnson, Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman Andrew Gardner and current Tech safety Isaiah Johnson.
The Yellow Jackets are targeting another Sandy Creek product for its 2012 college football recruiting class.
Will Adams, a 6-foot-6, 280-pound offensive lineman, was offered a scholarship at Georgia Tech’s
prospect camp over the weekend. The Yellow Jackets didn’t land any commitments from the camp, but handed out several new offers.
“There’s always been a good connection between Georgia Tech and Sandy Creek since our coaching staff has been here,” said Chip Walker, who has coached the Fayette County high school to back-to-back state football championships.
“We’ve had some guys who played for us at Sandy Creek and have gone on to Georgia Tech to do some pretty good things. Obviously, it’s a great offer for Will. Georgia Tech is a great school and Coach [Paul Johnson] and those guys do a really good job. Will has just got to sit down and look at what he’s got on the table and then decide what’s best for him.”
Adams has 10 scholarship offers, and is also looking hard at Kentucky and Louisville. He recently attended UGA camp, and is still being evaluated. Adams went to Georgia Tech on Saturday, and was rewarded with an offer. He was not cleared to work out at the camp after suffering a cut on his leg in a non-football injury last week.
“Georgia Tech still wanted him to come to the camp so they could offer him in person,” Walker said. “I think they like his size and athleticism — that’s what most people like about Will. He can do a little bit of everything. He can come off the ball and run block. But he’s a good pass-blocker as well. I know at Tech that may not be the biggest thing they do on offense, but Will can do both.”
“Will’s best days of football are ahead of him. He’s big, tall and very athletic He’s really smart. I think he’s the total package. He would be a great pickup for any school. Not just Georgia Tech, but anybody. I think he can play for anybody in the country. He’s started for us for two years, and this season will be his third. He’s a winner. Wherever he goes, someone is going to get a good football player.”
