Fighting Illini football just made the top-five for one of their southern recruiting targets. According to Scout, three-star athlete Jaylond Adams (AL) has narrowed his college list to Illinois, Indiana, UAB, Western Kentucky, and Southern Mississippi.
Adams has additional scholarship offers from Arkansas State, Middle Tennessee, Toledo, Ball State, Bowling Green, Samford, and Troy. Scout had the following to say about the Adamsville native on their player profile page:
Jaylond Adams is simply a weapon with the football in his hands. It may be as a wide receiver, running back or kick returner, but he is a threat to go the distance whenever he gets a touch....A smaller prospect, he is in need of polish as a wide receiver, where he is likeliest to play at the next level.
