Dooly County defensive tackle Montravius Adams has made it clear that his mother, Debbie Young, will play a huge role when it comes time to make a decision on where he will play college ball.
On Saturday the five-star prospect and his mother made the trip to Athens to see Georgia take on Ole Miss, and both left impressed.
"The trip was mainly to let my mom see Georgia and spend time up there," said Adams. "It was a really good trip. She had some questions and they answered her questions. She liked it a lot and told me it was one of the best places that she has been."
Adams has taken multiple trips to the Classic City since the Bulldogs offered early in the year, and was on campus earlier this season when UGA took on Tennessee.
On that trip, Adams left impressed with the visit but not so much with Georgia's defense that gave up 44 points to the Volunteers.
On this visit, however, Adams came away with a positive impression of both.
"They played a lot better defense this week," said Adams. "They have good players, and they are more mature as a group I think. They have really come together."
As is the case with any recruit who visits campus, the second-ranked player in the Peach State spent a lot of time with the Georgia players on this trip, and says that he has formed a strong bond with some of UGA's defensive linemen.
"I spent a lot of time with John Jenkins. He and I are pretty close," said Adams. "I also hung out with Jonathan Taylor a lot too. He is one of the main guys I hang out with. They are both trying to recruit me and want me to be a Dawg."
With Jenkins, however, the relationship goes beyond Adams' recruitment.
"With John, I know he has seen my film and he talks to me about how I can be better," said Adams. "I do the same for him when I see him play, too. We try to help each other out."
According to the Dooly standout, he also has a strong relationship with the Georgia coaches, and they have recently started letting him know exactly what they want him to do in their defense.
"They told me they want me to come in there and play anything up to a nine technique in their defense. I really like that," said Adams. "They say I can play any of the positions up front. I mean, I prefer a 4-3 defense, but I know they aren't that different. It is about half and half in the NFL, so I know I need to know how to play both."
The Rivals100 defensive lineman still maintains that he will narrow his list of schools after his high school season, but Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Florida, and Alabama appear to be the teams most often mentioned in his recruitment.
The day trip on Saturday was Adams' fifth visit to Athens in 2012 and sixth overall visit as he visited last season when Georgia took on Auburn, but he isn't sure if or when he will be back before he decides.
"I don't know when I'll visit again," said Adams. "I really like Georgia, and I know what is there so we will see."
