Following Friday’s Under Armour All-America Game, five-star defensive tackle Montravius Adams (Vienna, Ga./Dooly County) headed to Florida for the first official visit of his recruiting process.
The Under Armour All-American previously visited UF for the LSU game on Oct. 6 and was impressed by the win and The Swamp. This trip, however, was even better for the 6-foot-3, 303-pounder.
“It was probably my best visit so far,” Adams said of his UF official. “I mean I haven’t taken any other officials, but Florida set the bar pretty high. I think it’s a great place and I could see myself going there.”
Adams indicated last Wednesday that the official would be an opportunity for his mother to build her relationship with UF coach Will Muschamp, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and defensive line coach Bryant Young.
According to Adams, things went well in that department.
“She liked the coaches,” he said. “She spent a lot of time with them and got to see what they’re all about. I already know everything they have to offer me, but it was good for her to see it and I’m glad she did.”
Adams was hosted by Florida redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Leon Orr and enjoyed hanging out with the players, which was his main objective heading into the trip.
“Leon showed me a good time and I got to know the players like I wanted,” Adams said. “They told me they need defensive tackles and I think it would be fun to play with those guys.”
Adams wouldn’t call the Gators his leader, but he admitted that the visit improved their chances of landing him and guaranteed them a spot in his Top 5 when it is released this month.
He will officially visit Clemson this coming weekend, Alabama on Jan. 18, Georgia on Jan. 25 and possibly Auburn or Ole Miss on Feb. 1. Adams plans announce his decision on National Signing Day (Feb. 6).
