The Georgia Bureau of Investigation completed an autopsy on Monday, however the results were inconclusive, according to WSB-TV2 in Atlanta. More tests are scheduled this week to help determine the cause of death.

Adams had been on the Georgia Tech football team for three seasons, and was coming off of a career year. In 2018, he played 13 game and had 24 tackles, five for a loss, and two forced fumbles. All were career highs. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution devoted a whole article to Adams on Saturday, the day before his death was announced, naming him as a player to watch on the 2019 team.

Adams is already being mourned, with reporters, scouts, and fans posting messages to Twitter about his kind personality and gentle demeanor.
