Gators set to host this 4-star LSU commit on an official visit

Four-star offensive tackle Tyree Adams locked in his commitment to LSU back in July, but Florida is still pushing hard to flip the elite lineman. Billy Napier and Co. will get one more shot to wow Adams when he makes his official visit to the Swamp on Dec. 2-4, according to a report from Gators Online.

This won’t be Adams’ first trip to Gainesville on the year, but official visits allow the team to go above and beyond the normal regulations set by the NCAA. Florida has taken an interesting approach to official visits this season, giving payers the option to visit for the LSU game or after the season, but Adams seems okay with that.

He got a chance to stop by the Swamp on April 5 shortly after he was offered and returned in early June for a second unofficial visit. Adams last made it to campus at the end of July for the recruiting cookout that followed the Friday Night Lights camp, and a planned official visit for the Utah game was changed after Florida set its visiting schedule.

Of course, Billy Napier’s staff has plenty of ties to the state of Louisiana, which is where Adams is from. That should help Florida stay in the race until the very end, but it’s very hard to get a kid out of the state once LSU comes knocking. Adams is already committed to the Tigers so that only amplifies the difficulty level of the flip.

The On3 consensus ranks Adams at No. 186 overall in the class and at No. 14 among offensive tackles in 2023. The site’s individual rankings are a bit more bullish on him, putting him at No. 126 nationally and No. 10 among those at his position.
