The Maryland football team locked down its long snapper of the future on Thursday evening, when Arizona prospect Nate Adams offered his oral commitment via Twitter.


Ranked the nation’s seventh-best long snapper according to 247sports.com and a two-star prospect by the same recruiting outlet, Adams attends Greenway High School in Arizona and boasts a 3.83 GPA, according to his profile with the Rubio Long Snapping Academy. His other Division I scholarship offer came from the Air Force Academy, and he is scheduled to play in the Semper Fi All-American Game this January.

Highlights for Adams, listed at 6 feet 2 and 218 pounds, can be viewed here.

For Maryland this season, senior starter Greg Parcher, the special teams representative on the team’s leadership council, was perfect through 10 games but missed the final two games of his college career with an abdominal injury, so walk-on Will Rosenblum started in his stead. Maryland also has Joe Marchese and Christian Carpenter on the roster, but earning a full scholarship out of high school means Adams likely has the inside track for a four-year starting gig once he arrives in College Park for training camp.

Adams took his official visit to College Park last weekend, when he formally earned the scholarship offer. Committing afterward didn’t take long.
