How they got to College Park
Adams was the No. 7 long snapper in the class of 2014 when he committed to the Terps. He is on a scholarship, and though it’s unusual for a long snapper to get one, it never hurts to add a top-10 player at any position. Oliveira, on the other hand, walked on before the 2015 season.
Career highlights
Adams handled starting long snapping duties for the 2015 and the 2016 opener against Howard.
