Relationships and bat houses helped Florida land linebacker Jammal Abrams

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Jammal Adams is the first 2019 recruit to commit to Florida coach Dan Mullen and his staff.

The 3-star linebacker from Jackson-Olin High School (Birmingham, Ala.) made his announcement Saturday during his junior day visit. Adams told SEC Country he made the trip with the intention of committing.

“I had talked to my mom and dad about it and we just went with the plan,” Abrams said. ““It was during the beginning of the visit that I committed. Coach Mullen had brought me into his office.

“He said he wants me bad and he can see me playing as a Florida Gator. I told him I could see myself playing down here as well. He was happy for me. It was all joy.”

Abrams also spent time with linebackers coach Christian Robinson and defensive line coach Sal Sunseri, who serves as his primary recruiter. He offered Abrams on Jan. 12

“I love the joy, the happiness, the smiles,” Abrams said of Sunseri. “He’s hype. I love everything about him. He was one of the first coaches who actually gave me a full scholarship and I thank him for that.

“I also talked with Coach Dan Mullen himself and Coach Christian Robinson. They were just telling me how you have to be a champion on and off the field every day.”

The highlight of his visit? Seeing the University of Florida bat houses by Lake Alice.

“One thing I didn’t expect was the bats,” Abrams said. “I did not know they had bats down here, so that stood out a lot.”

Abrams plans to return to Florida for the spring game, a summer camp and the season opener. He is scheduled to visit Tennessee on Saturday.

Abrams replied “no” when asked asked if offers from Alabama or Auburn could put those schools in the mix.

“I am 110-percent committed. No if and or buts about it,” Abrams said. “I think once you commit somewhere you set a standard for where you want to be. If that’s where you want to be, you should stay there.”
