It was a rough week and rough month for Dooly County defensive tackle Montravius Adams.
The 6-foot-4, 300-pounder injured his ankle on the first day of Under Armour All-America practice and was diagnosed with a stress fracture. Adams, who was in a walking boot for the rest of the week, said it was related to being injured on a “chop block” in the loss to ECI in the Class A state championship game.
After Friday’s Under Armour game in St. Petersburg, Fla., Adams left immediately for an official visit to Florida.
He has also scheduled trips to Clemson, Alabama and Georgia this month.
He is deciding between Auburn, Ole Miss, North Carolina and USC for his fifth and final visit.
Adams had mixed feelings about defensive line coach Rodney Garner being hired away from Georgia. “It didn’t really change things. Well, it affected it a little bit. Me and him were really close. But it didn’t change how I feel about Georgia because maybe they’ll get a guy just as good, or maybe even better.”
Note: Mississippi State’s Chris Wilson has accepted an offer to become UGA’s new defensive line coach, according to the AJC’s Chip Towers. Wilson was demoted last week at Mississippi State after serving as the team’s defensive coordinator the last two seasons.
Seeing Rodney Garner carrying Reuben Foster’s MVP trophy around was 1 of the funniest things I saw this week. florida.247sports.com/Board/14/At-th…
