Heels still lead for 2009 WR

At 6-foot-4, 200-pounds, wide receiver Joshua Adams is tough to miss on the football field. The talented junior from Cambridge (Mass.) Cambridge Rindge & Latin is receiving new offers and seeing his stock skyrocket.

This past year Adams did it all for his high school squad. As a receiver he caught 64 passes for more than 1,000 yards with nine touchdowns. He also rushed for 400 yards and five scores, and on defense he picked off two passes and recorded 15 tackles.

For a while he has listed his leader as North Carolina. That hasn't changed in recent weeks.

"Yes, they're still my leader," Adams said. "I liked the school itself, not even talking about football. Football-wise they're a young team and up-and-coming program. Not everyone knows about them but their coaching staff is very good."

Adams would hesitate to put anyone else near the top of his list at this point.

"Right now there wouldn't be any others in the mix because I really haven't been to other schools yet. I am going to UConn on Sunday and I believe I'm visiting Rutgers sometime in February, though."

North Carolina, Rutgers, UConn, Boston College, Stanford, Iowa and Nebraska have extended scholarship offers to Adams.

He went on to break down the recruiting process further.

"I've been hearing from Notre Dame a lot," he said. "I've been hearing from UCLA too. Ohio State and Rutgers are really the other two schools that have sort of come on recently, and the rest are all the same from before."
