The day after Mike Williams became the third receiver from Clemson selected in the first round of the NFL draft in five years, receivers coach Jeff Scott flew out to check on a priority target at the position.
Cary (N.C.) Green Hope four-star Jordyn Adams was the recipient of the visit.
“He was just telling me everything he’s been saying through the whole recruiting process of where he sees me in the offense,” Adams told The Clemson Insider at The Opening Regional in Charlotte on Sunday. “They see me as a boundary guy and a slot guy. He said that they’re waiting on me, but they only have one more receiver spot left.”
Adams, a top-200 prospect in the 2018 class by Rivals and 247Sports, narrowed down his recruitment last month when he announced a top five of Alabama, Clemson, LSU, North Carolina and Ohio State.
North Carolina has been considered the heavy favorite to land Adams after his father, Deke, was re-hired as the school’s defensive line coach in January. Adams, though, insists all of the finalists under consideration are even in his mind right now.
He hasn’t set a date for his decision, but gave a timeframe for his commitment.
“Between now and my birthday, October 18,” he said.
Adams last visited Clemson for its junior day in January, when he was among the first group of prospects to tour the new facility in its completed form.
“It was crazy,” he said. “The best I’ve ever seen.”
Adams said the recent facilities upgrades, as well as the potentially historic recruiting class the Tigers are the process of building, appeal to him about Clemson.
“The facilities, and especially the class they have coming in and the things they have in the future,” Adams said.
A two-sport star, Adams intends to play both football and baseball at the next level, and said he has kept in touch with Clemson’s baseball staff.
“They actually were the first ones to recruit me at Clemson,” he said.
Adams is ranked by Rivals as the No. 36 receiver and No. 187 overall prospect in the 2018 class.
