The Fizz sat down with 6’6’’ 300 pound offensive line commit Evan Adams to discuss everything from Syracuse football to the Gay-Straight Alliance at his Norwalk High School in Connecticut.
The offensive lineman committed in June, but it was a recent visit that sold him 100 percent on SU: “I came up about a week ago and Syracuse is a phenomenal place, I have not one complaint about Syracuse. It’s the perfect size for me, just knowing that I come from a small town. Just knowing that I would be able to play at the next level of football [is exciting]. Seeing the huge basketball game against St. John’s, it was a little overwhelming at first, but it’s a great place to be.”
Adams went on to say that even before his visit, the school was where he felt most comfortable:
“[Syracuse] gave me a sense of home and also introduced me to a lot of people that would be able to help me out up there and [show me] how to be a better football player so I said you guys are giving me everything I could ever ask for so I might as well just come on down to Syracuse.”
The big man was most enthusiastic however, with the Orange’s new indoor practice facility: “I’m so excited for that. It’s a huge advantage; they laid down the turf that is in the Carrier Dome. It’s a 24-hour facility so I’ll be able to use it at all times of the day and it’s just a great place to be. [It’s a] phenomenal facility and it’s a wonderful place.”
