The Player Speaks: Pretty good explanation from Scout’s Michael Clark where we find out that Adams grew up in Texas, near Houston and that he feels like he is going home to Texas. Plus, his father is a federal agent and Lee Hays military background worked well for Adams:

“They’re very honest and don’t have any tolerance for nonsense,” he said. “My dad’s worked for the government his entire career and stresses discipline, and (offensive line) coach (Lee) Hays was a marine, so he expects the same, and I was drawn to that.”

Scouting Report: Adams is a bit more complete than the other offensive line commit this week, Travis Bruffy, but that really doesn’t matter all that much now. Adams already has some really good size and looks the part. Really nice and filled out frame and even if he doesn’t add any weight, coming in at 310 or whatever, especially given how he doesn’t look overweight, is a really good thing. I wouldn’t have guessed he’s 310 or whatever.

Adams looks to be quite a bit stronger in his upper body right now and his arms looked well developed. Doesn’t use his hands as much as he might be able to, but he’s pretty adept at moving defenders off of him with his hands. Has the requisite long arms to play tackle and I do like his footwork, although a lot of his film is engaging and driving, not as much pass protection. It takes all kinds, so I’m good with this.

Travis, welcome to Texas Tech and Git Your Guns Up!
