Fresh off second trip to UF, 4-star OT talking official visit
Four-star offensive tackle Tyree Adams visited the University of Florida for the first time on April 5. On Monday, June 6, he returned to participate in a one-day camp with the Gators’ coaching staff and may be planning another visit already.
Gators Online reported that Adams is looking at the Oct. 15 matchup between Florida and LSU, the hometown team in the hunt, for his official visit to UF. Beating the Tigers in Gainesville would be hard to ignore, and Billy Napier wants this recruit. The Gators’ head coach talks regularly with Adams and is treating him as a priority recruit.
“Yesterday at the camp, I did really well,” Adams said Tuesday to Gators Online. They show me consistent love each and every day. Coach Juluke, he texts me and asks how I’m doing often. With coach Sale, he texts me from time to time and just asks how I’m doing. Coach Napier texts me a lot too and showing me what Florida is all about.”
Alabama, Georgia and Ole Miss are the other programs set to receive official visits from Adams. The Crimson Tide will get him on Oct. 7 and that’s the only scheduled visit as of now.
LSU is the favorite right now to win over Adams, but there’s plenty of time to pry the New Orleans native out of Louisiana. It helps that Napier spent the last three years around those parts and has the kind of style Adams likes.
“He is a great coach. He’s cool, calm and collected,” he said. “He is the type of coach who doesn’t have to yell at you to get your attention. I really like that.
“The discipline he wants from his players is top-tier. He’s a really great guy to be around.”
The On3 consensus ranks Adams No. 210 overall in the class of 2023 and No. 20 among offensive tackles. The service’s individual rankings shed a more favorable light on him, perhaps the same light Napier sees him in, at No. 118 overall and No. 14 at his position.
