Tre Adams has been utilized primary at DE in HS but could play any where from LB to DT depending on how much weight a program wants him to carry. At 6’2,” 240-pounds, this athlete has the frame and length commensurate with Division-I college football. Samford and Cincinnati are in hot pursuit with many more to jump on before the senior season train leaves the station.HB Lyon, KPGFootball Scouting Division
Every now and again, though we principally cover the commonwealth of Kentucky, we like to feature an out-of-state guy. We have done this many times before and it is our way of thanking the large numbers of out-of-Kentucky prospects who follow us on Twitter.
Of course the player has to be plenty special to catch our eye. Yeah, that sums up Trevon (Tre) Adams from Rome, GA perfectly.
First of all, we have 17 college and universities in Kentucky which recruit the heck out of Georgia. In light of that fact, covering a Rome Wolf seems apropos especially since, after all, we don’t know he won’t play his college football in Kentucky.
Now Adams and some teammates rescued a woman from a car crash last August (’22). It was reported on the local Fox affiliate and MaxPreps. The young men, Adams included, were hailed as “heroes.”
Adams’ play on the football field, his junior year, was equally “heroic.” Adams played DE, for the most part, sometimes sliding down to tackle over his junior year.
Adams is 6’2,” 240-pounds and played on a team which was 12-2 in 2022 and won a regional championship playing 6A football. That is a fine record and not an easy accomplishment in the GHSAA (Georgia High School Athletic Association).
Playing Georgia 6A football is pretty significant. The GHSAA has seven classifications, based on a member school’s enrollment, like it is in Kentucky. Anything 5A or up in Georgia is “Big Boy Football.”
Ray Donaldson was from Rome, Georgia. He played collegiately for the Georgia Bulldogs before 17 years in the NFL and then enshrinement in the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame.
The Rome Wolves were 12-2 in 2022. The were Region 6-6A Champions a year ago.
Adams was not only an integral part of the effort, he made the All Region 6-6A football team. Georgia plays tremendous football and produces a ton of yearly, recruitable talent. Making an All-Region squad in the Peach Tree state is likened to making All-State in many bordering states.
Looking at the teams actively recruiting this prospect, it appears Samford and Cincinnati got on this guy first. That doesn’t mean there won’t be more suitors pulling up to feast before we get halfway through the upcoming combine/camp season.
Teams looking to sign Adams will be getting a twitchy, quick, fast, and powerful player who works low to high well and is able to scrape up and down the line of scrimmage and penetrate and make plays in the offensive backfield. They will also be getting an excellent student (3.4 GPA) who will have little trouble being cleared for play by the NCAA.
Speaking of the NCAA, KPGFootball has heard the NCAA has removed limits on visits. Prospects like Adams can visit as much as they wish.
We could suggest some of you big-time programs, around the old Bluegrass, may want to focus some attention this guys way. Lots of programs could use a hero. It would appear we may have found one for you.
