OXFORD, Miss. — Many of the nation’s top football prospects are using their summertime wisely, taking advantage of the opportunities to attend camps and visit schools they’re interested in.
One of these is talented four-star offensive tackle Tyree Adams who recently camped at Ole Miss and impressed the staff with his abilities.
Adams was also in Oxford for the Grove Bowl, the Rebels’ spring game.

The Rebel Walk had a chance to visit with Adams and talk about his experiences in Oxford and his recruitment.
Adams is a New Orleans native, and if you’ve ever been fortunate to spend time in NOLA, you know it’s filled with vibrant architecture, amazing music, and delicious food that will leave you wanting more.
It’s also filled with some of the top high school football players in the country.
Adams attends St. Augustine High School, also the home of top 2022 offensive tackle “Cajun Knight” Cam East who is now a Rebel. Ole Miss hopes to continue to build that New Orleans pipeline that leads to so many outstanding players.
Incidentally, the 2022 graduating class at St. Augustine High School recently made national headlines as every student has been accepted to college — and the group earned $9.2 million in scholarship offers.
As for Adams, he already has over 31 scholarship offers from every powerhouse program you can imagine, coast to coast. He holds SEC offers from: Ole Miss, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Texas A&M
Adams started at right tackle for St. Augustine his sophomore and junior year, and this fall he will move to left tackle where he will protect his quarterback’s blind side.
The 6-foot-6, 285-pound versatile lineman is one of the most sought-after offensive players, not just from Louisiana but the entire nation. He recently was elevated to four-star status and ranks as the No.17 overall offensive tackle and No. 14 athlete in the state of Louisiana.
