MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The Mountaineers received a bundled gift from Maryland this weekend when twin brothers and three-star recruits Jordan and Jacquez Adams became West Virginia’s eighth and ninth commitments for the 2015 recruiting class.
“I think both of them have extremely high ceilings as far as their potential. I think they fit great for West Virginia and what they do,” Franklin High coach Anthony Burgos told the crew at MetroNews “Statewide Sportsline” on Tuesday night.
The Adams brothers have combined to be a dynamic duo at Franklin and aspired to continue as a tandem at the next level. “They want to stay together, that was their passion. It’s been a place that they know is a good fit for them,” Burgos said.
Even though twins, they have extreme athletic ability in their own respects that sets them apart on the field.
“Jordan can obviously be a tremendous defensive back, as well as a wide receiver,” Burgos said. “Jacquez can be a kid who’s more like Russell Wilson—that type of quarterback who runs well, throws the ball well.”
Along with Tavon Austin’s immense success, WVU has mined Maryland for consistent performers like Terence Garvin and Jeff Braun. Baltimore-Dunbar quarterback William Crest, due to enroll in June, was recruited by Mountaineers assistant Lonny Galloway, who also landed the Adams twins.
“I think they enjoyed the coaching staff. I think Coach Galloway does a tremendous job staying in touch and giving us good attention,” Burgos said. “They saw what West Virginia does with the connection with the Baltimore kids.”
