After wrestling with the decision all day, Georgia Tech OL commit Will Adams decided to take a last-minute visit to Auburn this weekend.
“I’m about to leave for Auburn in about an hour or so,” Adams told the AJC on Friday evening. “I’m still committed to Georgia Tech but I’m taking a visit to Auburn.”
The 6-foot-6, 280-pound offensive lineman from Sandy Creek High School has been committed to Georgia Tech since last summer. Adams said he got last-minute offers from Auburn and UGA on Thursday, and has decided to visit with the Tigers on the final recruiting weekend before signing day.
Adams said he talked multiple times on Friday with Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson. “There were a lot of things we talked about, and there are a lot of things that went into my decision to visit Auburn. I’ll talk more about it later.”
Did Johnson tell Adams that he risked losing his scholarship if he visited Auburn? “He basically said ‘If you’re looking, then we’re looking.’”
Why does Adams want to visit Auburn? “One of the main things is that I wanted to have a school to compare to Georgia Tech. I don’t want to have any regrets down the road. I didn’t want to regret not visiting Auburn. I just wanted to have one other school to visit to compare to Georgia Tech.”
What about UGA? Is there a chance he could make a quick recruiting trip with the Bulldogs, too? “No, no chance at all,” Adams said. “That ship sailed a long time ago with Georgia. They’ve got a great program and everything, but it’s just not for me.”
