Private school OL hearing from several

Dallas Christian offensive guard Chris Adcock is considered one of the more dominant players from the private school ranks in Texas. A member of the Charger varsity since his freshman year, Adcock was named first-team all district and first-team all-state (TAPPS) in 2008. Sporting a 4.0 GPA and no. 1 rank in his class, Adcock was also named to the academic all-state team.

Combine his presence on the field and work in the classroom and you got a sure fire D-1 prospect. Although the 6-foot-3, 290-pound lineman doesn't hold an offer yet, he is getting strong interest from several schools throughout the south.

"I've got five junior days on the table right now," he said. "A&M, TCU, Oklahoma State, SMU and Nebraska. I've been to A&M's junior day. The next one I'll for sure be able to go to is Nebraska's next weekend. We're trying to make the SMU and OSU, but there is some conflicting stuff with that. I haven't got the date back on TCU's yet."

Adcock says academics will play a big role in his decision as well as the prestige a program has.

"One of the big things I'm looking at is academics and location, where it is in the country. And I'm looking for a solid program."

Adcock says Texas A&M is recruiting him the most right now and has them and another Texas school among his favorites early on.

"A&M is showing the most interest," he said. "They've been actively recruiting me for about two months. I'm pretty open, but my top two would probably be TCU and A&M."

Adcock has a familiarity with TCU having attended two games last fall and says the Frogs have a lot going for them right now.

"They got a great program going on right now," Adcock said of TCU. "I like the coaches there. I've talked with the recruiting coordinator quite a bit and they like my film. We went games against Stanford, Stephen F. Austin and BYU and we saw them play SMU over at SMU."

Adcock is being recruited as a guard but says he's unsure what position most schools like him at other than as an interior lineman. None of that matters to the rising prospect however as long as he gets the chance to play.

"I'm not really sure what position, probably interior line or center. Wherever they put me I'll play."

In the day and age of early commitments, Adcock is another prospect who would like to have a decision made before his senior season but says he will take the process as it comes to him.

"For me, I think I'm just going to go with the process right now. It's just starting up, so once it really starts going we'll see what route we're going to go. It would be nice to have it over before my senior year."
