Jordyn Adams, a dynamic 4-star wide receiver, announced Thursday evening that North Carolina is one of his final two schools, joining Clemson.
Adams, who narrowed down his list from a group that also included LSU, Alabama and Ohio State, transferred at the end of the first semester of this school year from South Carolina to Green Hope High School in Cary, NC, after his father was hired as UNC’s defensive line coach.
At 6-2 and 175 pounds, Adams has been on UNC’s radar for some time, and really exploded last summer, which included an eye-popping performance at Fedora’s Freak Show in June.
One of the things that impresses Adams so much about Carolina is that the staff recruiting him takes nothing for granted after his father, Deke, was hired. They recruited him just as hard and made it very clear he was wanted in Carolina blue.
“It shows that they really want me, not just because of my dad,” Adams recently told THI.
Adams would still seriously consider the Tar Heels even if his father had never been brought to Chapel Hill.
“I like how explosive they are on offense,” he said. “I’ve known Coach Fedora since I was like 10, so I know how his offense is.”
Adams knows Fedora and his staff will put quarterbacks on the field that can get the ball to their receivers. He saw it at Southern Miss with Austin Davis, who played in the NFL, and at UNC most recently with the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s NFL draft, Mitch Trubisky.
“It shows that in the future, if I go there I will have somebody that can get me the ball and I can make plays,” Adams said.
