Today, Hebron (TX) High School prospect Jamal Adams announced his top 6 on Twitter. Here is his tweet:

This was to be expected that the Texas Longhorns would be in his top 6, but the biggest surprise was Ole Miss and Notre Dame. Ole Miss is understandable because they seem to be the popular team for recruits right now. I won’t speculate but it’s strange to see a 6-6 team on a list with team that all had 9 or more wins last season. Notre Dame was barely mentioned in any interviews that Jamal did with other outlets so that is a shock to me at least.
In my gut, I believe that it will come down to Florida and Texas. Texas A&M might creep back up into the top 3 but Jamal Adams has visited Austin on many occasions so we do know he has a serious interest in attending the University of Texas. Although Joker Phillips’s relationship with Jamal Adams is significant (Florida WR coach and Jamal’s godfather), the distance might play a factor in his decision and I would predict that Jamal Adams would be a Longhorn.
