One of the biggest targets in recruiting for the Georgia Bulldogs will be playing in Saturday's Class A (public) state championship game at the Georgia Dome. Defensive tackle Montravius Adams, a 6'4, 295-pound lineman will be playing for Dooly County against ECI with kickoff scheduled for 11:30 a.m.
Georgia is one of the frontrunners for Adams along with the Clemson Tigers and the Florida Gators. He is also taking official visits to the Auburn Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide before he officially commits to a school. Adams is considered one of the top recruits in the country, let alone the state. He is ranked No. 2 in Georgia and No. 6 in the country by 247sports, which compiles rankings from multiple recruiting databases.
Dooly County head coach Jimmy Hughes says that a recent bout with the flu has helped Adams drop some weight and help him get a bit more speed:
"It came about when he had the flu. He was out for a week when we didn't play last month. He was sick with the flu, and he was in and out of the hospital that week. He dropped about 20 pounds. He has gained a little bit back but not much. He now has some of the quickness that really showed last year when he was lighter and about an inch shorter."
So far this season, Adams has recorded 127 total tackles, 34 for loss, 7.5 sacks and 43 quarterback hurries. He also handles the team's punting and kicking duties, averaging 34.5 yards per punt.
