Montravius Adams, who is ranked as the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect by 247sports, will take one of his last recruiting trips before signing day to UGA.
The 6-foot-3, 300-pound defensive tackle from Dooly County High School has selected four of his five official visits, according to his coach Jimmy Hughes. Adams will go to:
What about UGA? “My mom really likes Georgia, and they’re my hometown school,” Adams told the AJC on Wednesday. “I really like the coaches. I know their coaches aren’t about to leave. Their coaches are stable, which means they don’t leave a lot, like some of the other schools. Also, at Georgia, you can get a great education.”
Adams was also asked about a Dawg247 report that Rodney Garner, who is both UGA’s recruiting coordinator and defensive line coach, is a candidate to join Auburn’s coaching staff. How does Montravius feel about that? “If Coach Garner left, that would definitely make a difference with how I feel about Georgia. I really like Coach Garner. He would be my (position) coach if I went there, so …”
UGA could be his last visit, if he doesn’t set up a fifth one for the Feb. 1 weekend. There are several schools in the running for that spot, including Ole Miss, North Carolina and Auburn. “I’m really not sure about that last one. I don’t know yet.”
RELATED: Montravius Adams told ESPN’s DawgNation’s Kipp Adams that he visited briefly with Garner in the Georgia Dome before last Saturday’s Class A state championship game against ECI: “I only remember talking to Coach [Rodney] Garner from Georgia, and he told me about the style of offense ECI plays and how he hates going up against Georgia Tech and Georgia Southern because every year he will have a defensive lineman get hurt in that game,” Adams said. “I went down in the game and I was thinking he was right. I know Coach Garner talked to my mom, too, and she likes him.”
