Adams said he will announce his decision at The Opening Finals, which will take place from June 28-July 3 at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Ore.

Adams, one of the Tigers’ top targets in the 2018 class, previously named a top five of Alabama, Clemson, LSU, North Carolina and Ohio State last month.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder played at Blythewood High in South Carolina through December before transferring to Green Hope High in Cary, N.C. His father, Deke Adams, was hired as North Carolina’s defensive line coach in January.

Adams last visited Clemson for its junior day in January. He also attended Clemson’s games against Syracuse and South Carolina last season after being offered by the Tigers in October.

A two-sport star, Adams intends to play both football and baseball at the next level. As a junior on the gridiron, he played quarterback and threw for 2,350 yards and 24 touchdowns, and also rushed for 793 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Rivals and 247Sports rank Adams as a top-200 prospect nationally regardless of position.
