Four-star wide receiver Jordyn Adams from Cary, NC, has committed to North Carolina at Nike’s The Opening. Adams was deciding between the Tar Heels and the Clemson Tigers before ultimately choosing to play his college football in Chapel Hill.
Adams’ father is the defensive line coach for the Tar Heels, and he attended Larry Fedora’s Freak Show event last month. Although Adams is a star on the football field, that is not where his athleticism ends. Clemson was reportedly recruiting him for their baseball team in addition to their football team. According to Ross Martin from 247Sports, Adams is expected to suit up for the Diamond Heels as well as a center fielder. Also, he has some pretty solid basketball moves as well.
The commitment from Adams is the 11th for Carolina in the class of 2018. Adams joins Dyami Brown on the wide receiver front for the class so far. He ranks as the 26th best wide receiver in the country and 6th best in the state of North Carolina.
Losing out on Zamir White as a potential program-altering commit was disappointing, but Fedora’s crew is far from done. Bringing in highly rated guys like Adams shows that the upcoming Heels should be plenty exciting, even without the top running back recruit in the country.
Hopefully this is a continued sign of strong recruiting by Fedora and his staff. They may have had a leg up here with Adams’ dad being on the staff, but getting these guys to stay home and wear Carolina blue is so important when it comes to the program moving forward. Having someone good enough to be invited to The Opening commit on live television to the Heels can only help the cause.
