How'd He Get to College Park?

Adams transferred from Northwestern to Dunbar his senior year, but moved back after three games. A three-star prospect, he committed to Mike Locksley's New Mexico program over offers from Illinois, Marshall, Temple, Virginia and West Virginia.

As a Lobo, he played in the first two games of the year before injuries ended his season. He then transferred to Maryland, sitting out the 2012 season as a NCAA requirement.

Profiling the entire team

Adams played in four games last season without recording any statistics.

Nickname:

Lurch

Career Highlight:

Getting on the field against Clemson last year.

Dream Season:

At least one touchdown reception.

2014 Prospectus:

Adams is listed third at the slot position, behind starter Stefon Diggs, reserve Levern Jacobs and ahead of DeAndre Lane. It's extremely unlikely he stays there, as his body type doesn't exactly fit the position. Tight end might be the spot for him -- he's certainly big enough to play the position now, and Maryland has a need for a pass-catcher at the spot. There's a three-way battle for playing time there already between P.J. Gallo, Andrew Isaacs and Derrick Hayward, but Adams is certainly talented enough to throw his name into that competition.
