Josh Adams Signs With Notre Dame

Today, Josh Adams inked his letter of intent to officially become a member of the Notre Dame football team. Adams committed to Notre Dame on June 30, 2014. He selected Notre Dame over Penn State.

Adams only received offers from 6 schools including Pitt, Penn State, Temple, Stanford, Boston College and Notre Dame. The lack of scholarship offers may have been due to an ACL injury Adams sustained during his Junior year.

Josh Adams played his high school football at Central Bucks South High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In his career at Central Bucks South High School, Adams carried the 445 times for 3647 yards and 53 touchdowns.

Adams has an excellent opportunity to play during his Freshman year at Notre Dame. Rising Juniors Tarean Folston and Greg Bryant will demand the bulk of the carries. However, Adams has a chance to play as the 3rd Running Back. This will also depend on whether or not Dexter Williams signs with the Irish.

Scouting Report from Nick Combs:

At 6’2’’ 200 pounds is a bit taller than most running backs in football. His frame will support more weight when he does add muscle in his weight training. To me he seems to fit more as a slot back or as some may call it a hybrid back. Adams tends to run high and at 6’2’’ he will take a lot of shots if he doesn’t get his pad level down. As an elusive runner you must have great vision, but along with that you must know when to put your pads low at the end of the play and protect yourself and get those couple extra yards. I look forward to see how Coach Kelly uses Adams in the future.
