Three-Star Cornerback Chad Adams Chooses ASU

Arizona State picked up its second recruit in as many days as a Texas cornerback gave his verbal on Thursday afternoon.

Another day, another recruit.

So it goes for coach Todd Graham and the Arizona State Sun Devils as the recruiting bus seems to be picking up steam in August.

On Thursday afternoon, cornerback Chad Adams of Allen High School in Texas announced that he has de-committed from Baylor University and committed to Arizona State.

Adams announced his verbal commitment to Baylor back on June 2, but made an official visit to Tempe with teammate Christian Sam last week and had a change of heart. Sam, a linebacker, also committed to Arizona State after visiting the program.

Though Rivals.com only ranks Adams as a two-star prospect, 247 Sports and Scout.com consider Adams a three-star cornerback. Adams plays safety in high school, but projects as a cornerback and is listed as the 76th best corner in the nation for the class of 2014 by 247 Sports.

Adams is listed at 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds, and is the first Arizona State commit from the class of 2014 shorter than six feet tall. He is also the tenth recruit the Sun Devils have snagged from the class of 2014.

Adams has offers from Baylor, Connecticut, Kansas and others, and after his initial de-commitment, it cannot be certain that Arizona State is his final decision.

However, Todd Graham released a celebratory tweet that indicates Adams' new choice is one of good faith.
