One of the top football and baseball players in South Carolina will play at Green Hope this spring.
Jordyn Adams, a junior, enrolled at the Cary high school this week. Adams had announced in December that he would be moving from Blythewood, just north of Columbia, to North Carolina to be with his father, Deke Adams, who at the time was an assistant coach at East Carolina.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound athlete threw for 2,350 yards and ran for 735 with 35 total touchdowns. He has several offers to play both sports at the next level, including Clemson, South Carolina and North Carolina.
