Auburn football recruiting: Montravius Adams picks Tigers

Bud Elliott, SB Nation

Auburn landed a huge defensive commitment when five-star defensive tackle announced his decision to play for the Tigers.

Montravius Adams, the No. 10-rated recruit according to 247Sports, announced his intention to play for Auburn on National Signing Day. Adams announced his decision at a ceremony at his high school. The five-star defensive tackle, who played for Vienna, Ga., Dooly County High School, chose the Tigers over Georgia, Alabama and Clemson, the three other finalists for his services.

Adams had zeroed in on Auburn after also considering offers from just about every top school in the country, including Florida, Arkansas, Florida State, LSU and Michigan. He was considered to be a Clemson lean for quite a while, but after his official visit to the Plains last weekend, Auburn jumped right back into contention for Adams. He had strongly considered the orange-and-blue Tigers earlier in his recruitment, but an awful season and the firing of head coach Gene Chizik resulted in the five-star cooling on Auburn for a while.

Adams was the third-highest defensive tackle in the 247Sports rankings, trailing Eddie Vanderdoes and Kenny Bigelow. He joins an Auburn squad that has seen poor play on the interior defensive line over the last two seasons. Adams should be able to provide a boost almost immediately.
