Football Recruiting - Montravius Adams and Wayne Gallman

Clemson has made the cut for Montravius Adams, the nation's top-ranked defensive tackle prospect.

According to ESPN, Adams announced four of his five official visits on Wednesday. He'll visit Florida, Clemson, Alabama and Georgia, and is choosing between North Carolina and Mississippi for his final visit.

Adams, who recently helped Dooly County win the Georgia Class A title, has apparently eliminated Auburn from consideration. Clemson and Auburn have long been considered his front-runners.

Adams received his first scholarship offer from Clemson a year and a half ago, and has had the Tigers in his lead group ever since. He visited campus for several days last summer, and then returned during the fall for an unofficial visit, accompanied by his mother.

Clemson hopes to sign Adams and play him in tandem with 2013 commitment Scott Pagano of Honolulu, Hawaii, who is the nation's No. 12 defensive tackle, according to Rivals.

Adams didn't win the class A title for Dooley county. They had the brakes beat off them by ECI. After the game, Adams refused to shake hands with ECI or even touch the second place trophy. I hope he grows up alot if he chooses Clemson.
