Adams staying firm with USC pledge

Four-star Rivals250 wide receiver Joe Adams was slated to take an official visit to Norman, Okla. to see the Sooners this weekend despite making a verbal commitment to USC live on television in Arkansas. However, the 6-foot-0, 167-pounder out of Little Rock never made it to campus.

So where does Adams stand with the Trojans and other schools in his recruitment? caught up with Adams' coach Tim Perry for an update.

"Joe is still solid in his commitment to USC," said Perry. "He's not opening up his recruitment."

On Aug. 24, Adams announced his commitment to USC over offers from Arkansas, LSU and Florida among others. The multi-purpose athlete plays all over the field for his Cenral Arkansas Christian Mustangs and was recruited to USC as an athlete.

According to Perry there has been no wavering in Adams' Southern California pledge.

"He didn't make the trip to Oklahoma. I don't know why he didn't. I haven't talked with him about recruiting in a month or two," said coach Perry. "We've just been focused on the season. As far as I know, nothing has changed with him."

Adams is rated as the No. 27 wide receiver in the country and the No. 4 player in the state of Arkansas. Through Adams' first three games he has rushed for 128 yards and has caught 7 passes for 142 yards. Adams has reached the endzone three times along with one touchdown pass.
