Montravius Adams: UGA will get visit from 5-star and … his mom

UGA will have the opportunity to make an impression on the mother of 5-star DT Montravius Adams on Saturday (AJC)

UGA will have the opportunity to make an impression on the mother of 5-star DT Montravius Adams on Saturday (AJC)

The undisputed No. 1 prospect in the country will be at UGA on Saturday.

But the most important visitor for the Bulldogs that day will be Montravius Adams, the defensive tackle from Dooly County High School who is ranked as the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect – behind Robert Nkemdiche – by 247sports.com. The Bulldogs have a good shot at Adams.

Perhaps even more important than Montravius being there will be the attendance of his mother, who will be accompanying the star recruit. When Adams experienced his first-ever UGA game last month for the win over Tennessee, he went without his mother.

That’s a pretty big deal because Adams had told reporters that his mother will help him make his college decision. As we’ve learned this year in recruiting, especially with the Nkemdiche situation, one of the first rules of recruiting is this: Win over the mother.

Florida, Alabama, Clemson, UGA and Auburn are considered among the favorites for the 6-foot-4, 310-pound Adams. Auburn coach Gene Chizik will make an appearance at Dooly County’s game on Friday, according to DawgNation’s Kipp Adams.

Nkemdiche will also be at the UGA with his mother; they will be watching his brother, Denzel Nkemdiche, the Ole Miss linebacker who leads the teams in tackles. The Bulldogs are considered a longshot with Nkemdiche, who has always really admired Mark Richt for his Christian values.

When asked about UGA’s chances on Thursday, Nkemdiche was respectful and said, “I don’t know. I could fall in love when I get there. I haven’t been there in forever, so I don’t know.”

It’s just a reminder that we are dealing with 17 year old kids. They just happen to be 6′4″ and weight 300 lbs. To show respect for one’s mother is not a bad thing.

I’m pretty sure most if not all recruits make their college decision after consultation with their parents or a family member.

I think he is cool for caring so much about his mother. It tells me a lot about his character and priorities in life. P.S. Some of the toughest guys I know are proud to say they are “mama’s boys”!!!! Good luck Montravius…..I hope to see you between the “Hedges” next season playing for your home state team. Go Dawgs!

Agreed Dawgfan. I’ll take a mama’s boy like Montravious in a heartbeat over a kid who really doesn’t know their parents because they were never there. EVERY 17 or 18 year old needs a parent or parental guardian to steer them in the right direction otherwise they often are listening to the wrong people, i.e Isaiah Crowell.

Actually, I thought the Nkemdiche interview was excellent and insightful. Closing the comments was appropriate. This entire media madness of Nkemdiche’s recruitment has ben way over the top as has been the reaction of collegiate football fans (mostly Bammers).

I think Ga should tell Nkemdiche to get his ticket from Ole Miss if he wants to attend Saturday. He is only going to see his brother play. Same with the mom. He is not going to go to Georgia. After reading her interview she is looking for some major suck up to her to get her approval and Nkemdiche is going to probably do what his mom wants- play with his brother and both will not make Ole Miss relevant in the SEC West. I am tired of hearing about the Nkemdiches

I work, I play, I pay my bills on time and because of that I can afford season tx to UGA football. Here’s the problem. I realize you have to make a living too, but this recrooot’n garbage has gotten wayyyyyyy out of hand. I DON’T GIVE A FLYING F…K about Kim-dee-chee, Montravious Adams — wasn’t he a Roman Senator — or Piggly Wiggly until the suit up at Sanford Stadium and this total adoration for these wanna-be’s disgusts me and IMHO borders on pedaphelia. Here’s my vow and guarantee. I vow NEVER AGAIN waste my time reading this garbage which is more than likely followed by guys name Roy who have the last name proudly stenciled on the You-nee-forms nor have I nor will I go to twiiter or facebook and “Like” any 17 year old kid. is that statutory rape? My guarantee is as follows. Kim-dee-chee will be a bust and if you and your fellow child molesters don’t get a life, so will you. Remember I-zay-yah crow-WELL? Go ahead and reserve a scholarship for this idiot at AL A&M. Do any of you pedaphiles REALLY think Vince Dooley or Bear Bryant would lick spittle after this guy like you and your ilk for one second? I STRONGLY disagree with the way you and your readers follow these guys around picking up their chewed bubble gum like lost dogs. GET A F…G life.

When has affection and respect for one’s parents or parent been a bad thing? I hope Mount Adams and his Mom have a great, positive visit and the Dawgs break one off in the Dirty Rebs. Time for Richt to take the gloves off and run up some score. Play to win for 4 quarters and don’t be a wussy if we take a big lead. These last few games will make or break our season. I say, “Put the peddle to the metal”, and send Ol Sis back home with her tail between her legs. Need some killer instinct through the rest of the year. If you want Charity, Compassion & Mercy, go to Church Sunday and be a good Dawg the rest of the week, but Sat. come for BLOOD…

The state of Calif has one 5 star – he will play for USC

The state of Tex has two 5 star – one will play for Tex

The state of Fla has four 5 stars – 1 commit to Fla – 3 uncommitted

The state of Ala has two 5 stars – they committed to Aub/Ala

The state of Ga has four 5 stars – none commit to Uga or Tech

Stay home and represent your state guys. Herschel Walker and Hines Ward didn’t leave the state. If you’re leaving because uga or tech don’t have the courses that you’re looking for then I understand .

Forget about the Nkemdiche circus, that’s between Ole Miss & Clemson. I hope, UGA has their eyes focused on Montravious Adams and his mother this is the better recruit that basically fits the needs of UGA!

I have heard Montravious wants to strap on the “G” and become a dawg… just like Jordan Jenkins he will have plenty of early playing time at UGA and a fast track to the next level!

Thanks to Nick Saban or Kirby Smart for explaining/selling to Adams the principles of the 3-4 compared to the 4-3 defense…. Adams understands now and feels comfortable with the 3-4 which both UGA and Bama play.

Another important recruit that will be taking an official visit at the Ole Miss game is WR Jonathon Rumph 6′ 5″ 210 lbs JUCO from Holmes Community College MS. UGA is looking to add a tall WR in this recruiting class to take Marlon Browns position on the roster. Rumph has stated he will commit soon after this game, his last of five official visits… rumored to be between Mississippi State and UGA.

Good luck to the Nkemdiche’s at Ole Miss… it’s nice to keep the football talent in the SEC!

7-5 next year….with a pretty good offense that’s coming back, maybe 8-4. losing big numbers on defense and pick up Clemson and LSU over the barber/beauty schools we drop off. And Tenn & AU will probably have new coach’s with lot’s of players coming back. Do I hear 6-6. Yikes, hope not.

Flo - Ri - Duh

November 2nd, 2012

Only got 4 to 6 spaces left for commits unless someone decoms. Tunsil, Crowder, Kamara, Toby Johnosn, M. Adams, and a WR , probably Rumph. That will fill up the class. Sorry Nkemdiche and Foster – you will have to wait and see if UGA still has an opening. Just dreaming.

Flo - Ri - Duh

November 2nd, 2012

I would say that Tunsil is #1 and Adams/Johnson #2/#3 and Crowder #4 and Kamara #5 because of current needs in this class. Yes they need Nkemdiche and Foster but it’s not going to happen as they will go to Bummer if they change their mind. Mama wants Nkemdiche at Ole Miss since Denzel is there but her 1st choice was Bummer. Ourse mama is absentee in Nigeria and won’t be attending games any way. There is a chance that Foster will have to remove that tat and put Bummer over it. Why is Chizik going to Dooly County? Adams ain’t going to Clemson.

Respect Mom. Michael Jordan coming out of college told Nike he would meet with them in Oregon. After a busy schedule meeting with different potential sponsors, he was going to tell Nike he wasn’t coming. His mother told him he had said that he would meet them and she told him that he was going to honor his commitment to meet Nike. I bet he thanks his mother everyday.

Coach Richt is holding back ships for Foster, Tunsil, Langley, Kamara, Adams, Johnson and Crowder. UGA has back-up plans (B&C) already in place if their #1 recruit decides to commit to another school.

Players in the play – WR JaQuay Williams, CB Riyahd Jones, RB A J Turman, OL Alan Knott, OT DeVondre Seymour and UGA is still in contact with OT Trenton Brown also DE Dalvin Bellamy is still hanging close by… he will be at the Ole Miss game.

This 2012 recruiting class is rocking and will be the best ever, in the history of UGA football… half of the recruits will be EE’s!
